This is mostly harmless unless it happens that the tests were renamed in a way that causes the new ini file and the old one to have the same name in a case-insensitive filesystem, which can then cause problems.
The easiest way to ensure that old metadata files are removed is
simply to check that all the existing metadata files still correspond
to a test file, and remove those that do not. This happens before
metadata update so that if the metadata update causes a patch to be
created, these changes are included in the patch.
