IIRC This should only happen when a file under VC is read-only and you make
the buffer read-write with C-x C-q.  The warning is present to remind people
that C-x C-q doesn't do vc-toggle-read-only any more.

Actually I think it makes sense (or not) for any backend since it's just
linked to the change from vc-toggle-read-only to vc-toggle-read-only.

That's a bug.
