This looks good to me and is obviously correct:

Just a small nit/OCD :).

The only change to that test code that's actually needed is just doing:

    -               "graph version"
    +               "graph has version"

The rest were already grepping subsets of the message before/after, and
maybe worth it to keep it consistent that all these
"corrupt_graph_and_verify" invocations grep the part of the message that
isn't the "commit-graph <whatever>", i.e. now with just that change:

    $ git grep -h -A1 corrupt_graph_and_verify|grep -o '".*"$'
    "graph signature"
    "graph has version"
    "hash version"
    "missing the .* chunk"
    "missing the OID Fanout chunk"
    "missing the OID Lookup chunk"
    "missing the Commit Data chunk"
    "fanout value"
    "fanout value"
    "incorrect OID order"
    "from object database"
    "root tree OID for commit"
    "invalid parent"
    "is too long"
    "commit-graph parent for"
    "generation for commit"
    "non-zero generation number"
    "commit date"
    "invalid parent"
    "incorrect checksum"

Well, there's the sore thumb of "commit-graph parent for".
