I know, but that test used to generate a failure and not an error before.

So something seemed to be changed, because it started to be flakey again
commit 1c5cc4a2d1449296a96e8a137dc177191df00c8d.

I'll change _NBT_ASSERT() and _NBT_ASSERT_STRING() to use the
torture_assert macros,
so that's a failure again, but we need to bisect why it is failing there
while it didn't fail before with an error.
