But in most of those cases, the data you have makes the broken
behaviour inconsequential.

I've seen *reams* of test suites that have this problem simply because
of the fun with needing to deal with marshalling your strings through

But the good thing is, the warnings are ignorable, they don't indicate
any broken behaviour in place. The code they're warning about is
external to the problem.

It may produce some confusion for the person who reads the test
output, but it does not demonstrate a real bug in the program under

Making a test fail when there is no problem will simply encourage
people to not run tests.
