This is a bit of a flaw in the topic metadata request logic on the broker
at startup. We need to fix it. Before a broker receives the first
LeaderAndIsrRequest/UpdateMetadataRequest, it is technically not ready to
start serving any request. But it still ends up serving
TopicMetadataRequest which can re-create topics accidentally. It shouldn't
succeed, but this is still a problem. Could you file a JIRA?
