Hm, might be. However, not testing the critical points is really bad. If
we hit any interesting case with the current tests, it's pure luck.

What we can do is to reduce the number of write requests. In theory,
just one request for each case should be enough. However, if we change
the test in this way, we would lose a test doing lots of small writes.
Maybe an additional test instead that aligns it requests according to
the cluster size?
