I can't judge how far it is from polished, and whether it's worth
having this test or should be removed in the meantime, but I would
like to clarify this part from my previous email that you might have
interpreted as a suggestion to remove these tests (it confused even
myself on second read):

I was not wondering whether it's necessary to test ticket expiration
_in general_.  What I really meant was whether that first 'git p4
sync' was really necessary in that test 'git operation with expired
ticket'.  After all, what we want to see in this test is that 'git p4
sync' fails with a specific error message when the ticket expired, and
when flakiness hits, then this first 'git p4 sync' does fail with the
expected error message.
