This is interesting :) On a first look, this doesn't seem like a problem. It's a "feature". The TV test suite runs the test, multiple times, within the same browsing session.

This test works like this:

- register a dynamic test scalar;
- accumulate some data to it;
- expire it;
- try to accumulate again;
- verify that we don't accumulate anymore after expiring.

After the first half of the test runs, a test scalar is dynamically expired. So, if the same test runs again in the test-suite, it won't be able to update the test scalar and the test will fail.

Aryx, given the behaviour of this test and how the TV suite runs, can I close this bug after waiting a few days to make sure that my theory still holds?

Sure, alternatively is it possible to reset the behavior after "- verify that we don't accumulate anymore after expiring."?

If you set it to WONTFIX, sheriffs will star against the closed bug. We need bugs to classify these common issues so we don't have to spend time investigating each occurrence of this.

Thanks Sebastian!

That would require some changes to the Telemetry core and might be too involving for this particular case. Closing this as WONTFIX.
