    Description

      When the oldest_timestamp is held back, and stable_timestamp moves forward after the new snapshot is taken for updates, the page eviction would abort during WT_SESSION.verify. This issue became more visible after SERVER-31767. It's only specific to MongoDB DEBUG builds (and corresponding WiredTiger diagnostic builds).

      It would be helpful to add a Python test to cover this scenario:

      1. hold back oldest_timestamp
      2. insert data
      3. create a checkpoint
      4. run verify.
