# The example from the paper "A read-only transaction anomaly under snapshot
# isolation"[1].
#
# Here we test that serializable snapshot isolation (SERIALIZABLE) doesn't
# suffer from the anomaly, because s2 is aborted upon detection of a cycle.
# In this case the read only query s3 happens to be running in a parallel
# worker.
