This code doing some of the same stuff as in #25943 -- creating X509 objects via tor_malloc_zero. If that's causing trouble there, it could also be the cause here.

Honestly, both this test and the test at issue in #25943 seem very overfitted to me -- they're testing internal paths of the functions they test without much rhyme or reason, using objects that violate our invariants. If we can't fix them, we should just replace them.
