Bug reference:      16202
Logged by:          Wagner Engel
Email address:      (redacted)
PostgreSQL version: 12.1
Operating system:   Debian 10
Description:        

If I build a materizalized view that uses the crosstab() function, a
dump/restore cycle will not restore the database.
A simple test case is:

create.sql:
--------------------------------
CREATE EXTENSION tablefunc;

CREATE TABLE t (
	id INTEGER
);

CREATE VIEW v AS
SELECT * FROM crosstab (
	'SELECT id FROM t as t1',
	'SELECT id FROM t as t2'
) ct (a integer, b integer);

CREATE MATERIALIZED VIEW mv AS
SELECT * FROM v;
--------------------------------

$ createdb -h localhost -U postgres abc
$ psql -h localhost -U postgres abc < create.sql
CREATE EXTENSION
CREATE TABLE
CREATE VIEW
SELECT 0
$ pg_dump --host localhost --username "postgres" --format plain --file
abc.sql abc
$ createdb -h localhost -U postgres abc2
$ psql -h localhost -U postgres abc2 < abc.sql
SET
SET
SET
SET
SET
 set_config 
------------
 
(1 row)

SET

CREATE EXTENSION
COMMENT
CREATE VIEW
ALTER TABLE
SET
SET
CREATE MATERIALIZED VIEW
ALTER TABLE
CREATE TABLE
ALTER TABLE
COPY 0
ERROR:  relation "t" does not exist
LINE 1: SELECT id FROM t as t2
                       ^
QUERY:  SELECT id FROM t as t2



Using format custom and pg_restore also fails:

$ pg_dump --host localhost --username "postgres" --format custom --file
abc.backup abc
$ createdb -h localhost -U postgres abc3
$ pg_restore --host localhost --username "postgres" -d abc3 abc.backup 
pg_restore: while PROCESSING TOC:
pg_restore: from TOC entry 2901; 0 1094129 MATERIALIZED VIEW DATA mv
postgres
pg_restore: error: could not execute query: ERROR:  relation "t" does not
exist
LINE 1: SELECT id FROM t as t2
                       ^
QUERY:  SELECT id FROM t as t2
Command was: REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW public.mv;


pg_restore: warning: errors ignored on restore: 1



Extra:
Within the abc.sql dump, the CREATE TABLE command is after both create view
commands. Moving it before makes no difference.
