The documentation says that the unadorned --force-with-lease looks at
the remote-tracking branch for the target ref (a branch in your case),
if this exists, and requires the tip of the target ref to be the same
as the tip of this remote-tracking branch.

IOW, if you're pushing to "test-lease" with plain --force-with-lease,
`git push` will try to locate the "remotes/origin/test-lease" branch
and then require that the remote "test-lease" branch points to the same
commit your "remotes/origin/test-lease" points to.

This means that if you did rebase your local "test-lease" and then
did `git fetch`, you've updated your "remotes/origin/test-lease"
with the current "upstream" tip commit of that branch and the check
passed when you pushed.

So, could you somehow verify that?

You could also try the two argument form of --force-with-lease.
