Unfortunately, I’ll have to unstage the series for now because the fix
to 026’s reference output isn’t stable.

When running the test in parallel (I can reproduce it with four
instances on my machine with two cores + HT), I get failures like:

026      fail       [15:21:09] [15:21:37]      (last: 18s)   output
mismatch (see 026.out.bad)

 This means waste of disk space, but no harm to data.
