It seems the state of the 2 autopkgtest-web workers is inconsistent,
not all results were copied up on all instances.

I noticed that it retried a migration-reference/0 test after the failure
which indicated it did not allow the failure, but a later run might have
hit the different backend and hence might have a different view.

So it's unclear if that's the reason, but bdmurray is cleaning that up
right now.
