At the point that there are two separate warnings advising you to turn off a configuration parameter in postgresql.conf, it’s probably a good idea to take the advice and disable it.
In theory, this parameter sets a maximum amount of data that will flow over an SSL connection before key renegotiation, to prevent an eavesdropping attacker from determining the session key through collection of a large amount of ciphertext. In practice, it just causes broken connections and miscellaneous problems. Turn it off, especially in situations where you have funky networking and long-standing SSL connections (such as between a primary and secondary).
