So, is naming the files "status.expect.2" instead of just
"expect"/"actual" ok or not?
Those prefixes "status" etc just help sorting out where the problem
lies that causes the test to fail. But let me know if this is too

Ok, no problem, will change that. The only thing, I saw this in other
tests, so decided to use it too. Those tests use "test_mighf_fail rm"
and "ls" seemingly without invocation of git
