Personally, it would make me very very hesitant to propose a patch
(yet alone release it via security update) when I had not discovered
the reason for this.

Bear in mind that the cause may not be in the testsuite and could be
in the actual run-time code itself — ie. the improved testsuite is
simply exposing it, just as it should.
