I disagree here: disabling in Guix tests is _never_ done casually AFAIS
(as far as I see) but always ponderated and discussed, like in this case

Also: automated software testing is better than nothing but... who test
tests? *Sometime* it happens that tests introduces "collateral test

disable proved unreliable ones :-D
