Adding maintainers ML here as the concerns raised are very very important.

Thanks for finding this, Kotresh. Very helpful.

The above is very concerning, and scary for sure. I guess by moving to
chunked regression where we don't get machines but only the logs, we may be
at better state as every time machine comes up, it will start from a fresh

Everyone using the regression machine till we have new setup, please make
sure you cleanup your stuff.

I have sent the geo-rep patch[1] which throws out more specific error
