Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Every few commits, there's now a random PHP 7.1 test failure on Travis, mostly off-by-one errors unrelated to the preceding commit. Started about 1 month ago, after August 20th.

Seems like either PHP 7.1 tests are for some reason more prone to random errors than other versions, or it's just more prominent now that random date/time failures from #45821 are fixed.

Creating a ticket just for reference, any ideas as to why this happens appreciated.

Some examples:

Might be due to the sort order being indeterminate. If posts are sorted by a field other than ID then the field value may not be unique (eg. two identical dates), which makes the sort order indeterminate.

Not sure why this would start showing up now though.

#7 @SergeyBiryukov

It looks like most of the failures here have to do with $this->factory->post->create() failing to create a post and the tests not handling that appropriately. Perhaps adding some logging there would help?
