The very first thing I noticed lookng at that commit is it's subject:
"Updated list of unstable tests for 10.1.38 release"

The first comments of that file states:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#  List the test cases which, unlike tests from disabled.def files,
#  can still be run on the current tree meaningfully, but are known
#  or suspected to fail sporadically on different reasons.
#  Most common reasons are either test failures observed in buildbot,
#  or recent modifications to the tests which make their stability
#  unknown.
#  Tests included due to recent modifications are later removed from the
#  list, if during a certain period they do not fail (and are not
#  modified again). Tests included due to intermittent failures are
#  removed when corresponding bug reports are closed.
#  Separate the test case name and the comment with ':'.
#    <suitename>.<testcasename> : MDEV-xxxxx - <comment>
#  '*' wildcard in testcase names is supported.
#  To use the list, run MTR with --skip-test-list=unstable-tests option.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So *all* those rests _are_ considered unstable upstream.

IMHO they should be *selectively* skipped when they causes build
problems in Guix, including non-deterministic frequent ones like in this

The same is happening upstream:
https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-16040 (duplicate of the above)

That bugs (and all others related to unstable tests) are currently

HTH! Gio'
