I don't think that the login procedure and the underlying wp_signon() are covered by (php)unit tests.
Since this is something quite trivial, I believe this should be added.

I tried to add it myself, but failed. Keep running into Cannot modify header information - headers already sent errors.

Hi @slimndap,

Welcome to Trac! My apologies this took so long to receive a response.

It's been a while so I took a look. Seems there is one test for wp_signon() now that was added while solving #38744, but this area could definitely benefit from more unit tests (wp_authenticate_username_password(), wp_authenticate_email_password(), and wp_authenticate_cookie()` also do not have any tests).
