@bcmills requested issue #46528 to be considered for backport to the next 1.16 minor release.

@gopherbot, please backport to Go 1.16.

This condition is fairly rare, but an unhelpful error message can be very confusing and frustrating when it happens, and the fix will hopefully be small and non-invasive.
