I've just did a little research and came to the following results:

1. modifying the 'C. O. Mitter' key would require changes to 4 tests,

2. modifying the 'Eris Discordia' key would require changes to 2 tests
   (both in 7510).

Do you think 2. would be an acceptable option?  I think changing 2 tests
would be preferable to proliferating a third key for one test case. 
Also, given that both failing tests are specifically format string
tests, one of them would serve additional purpose of testing %GP!=%GF.

Best regards,
