Ahn, that's good to hear.

many (seemingly unrelated) tests. And they were the simplest ones.

Bisection will be hard with breakages on top of others, and it will
take a while to clean it up, which means more failures will trample
over...

Last time this happened to one of our bots, it took me three weeks to
go back to green. If even only half of our bots go red in that state,
we may be in it for the long run... :(
