I think it's probably unsurprising.  That test doesn't load very many
rows, and when you allow them to become toasted, they probably all fit
into one page.  The SYSTEM tablesample method would then return either
every row, or no row.

Possibly we should be using a less chintzy (ie slower) test there,
but a change like this would inevitably change the outputs anyway.
