Yes, replication can be stopped, but can you give a theory as to how
replication causes an issue in tombstone_reanimation?  

The delete_object test does manipulate replication, indeed, that is the
purpose of the test.

The dbcheck failures I wasn't previously aware of - it is one thing to
have the wrong state after a conflict in delete or not, it is entirely
another to get that state wrong enough that dbcheck can notice.  This
may give some insight.
