Yes, I've spent quite some time with some flaky behavior while running
the replay tests as well. But in the end, the test remained unchanged
because we found the issues in the actual code under test (one time
the recording of the replay file would sometimes be corrupted when
using >=1 CPUs, but 100% of the time when using a single CPU).
This time, it was failing 100% of the time in my experience, and now,
after the fix in df3a2de51a07089a4a729fe1f792f658df9dade4, it's
passing 100% of the time. So I guess even tests with some observed
flakiness can have their value.
