writing a test for Bug#24672 (viper mode malfunction while inserting a p

This is a corner case.
When I start in viper mode with this file contents:

  #define z_b\

and then change the "z" to a parenthesis (either one), I get this:

  #define (z_b^I^I^I^I^I\$

[I have represented each TAB as "^I", of course]
Rather surprising to see all of those TAB characters inserted. To
reproduce, run this:

  mkdir ~/empty && printf '#define z_b\\\n' > k.c \
    && HOME=$HOME/empty /bin/emacs -Q -f viper-mode k.c

hit "n", "n", and "5" at the successive prompts, then e.g., "fzs(" to
perform the change and to see the surprising result.

I tried to write a test case to encapsulate the above, but so far have
failed, because when run via the test, viper-mode does what one would

Is there some test set-up I can perform to make that test work like
