The \d+ command attempts to print out any publications that the relation
is part of.  To find the publications it is part of, it runs this query:

    "SELECT pub.pubname\n"
    " FROM pg_catalog.pg_publication pub,\n"
    "      pg_catalog.pg_get_publication_tables(pub.pubname)\n"
    "WHERE relid = '%s'\n"
    "ORDER BY 1;",

pg_get_publication_tables() calls GetPublicationByName(), which throws
this error.

So I suppose that if a publication is dropped between the time
pg_publication is read and the function is called, you could get this error.

How could we improve that?
