No the fix is heap_open before SearchSysCache().

I don't think heap_open will be enough once we remove the
AccessExclusiveLock of the catalog in DropSubscription because
concurrent AlterSubscription might happily add tables to the
subscription that has been dropped if we don't lock it. But you made me
realize that even my patch is not enough because we then reread the
subscription info only from syscache without any kind of invalidation
