Yes, the check file should be regenerated.  Initially when writing the
tests I was manually generating the check files but this takes too much
time and is hard to maintain so now current behaviour is captured -
wrong or right.  So, yes, if the behaviour changes when a bug is fixed
then the check needs to be regenerated as long as the impacts on other
tests (if any) are considered.
