The "doc/Additional" ctests all pass now, but the following ctests for

It seems they fail the convergence criteria of the test. That is, with
successive round trips the .lyx files keep changing. This is expected in
some cases (and we can adapt the tests), but I don't know enough to know
whether it's expected here. Also, it was surprising that the English
version converges but not the Spanish version. Here [1] is a screenshot
of the Spanish Additional manual after a few iterations. Interestingly,
the first column has only one pair of ERTs, but the second and third
columns show the failed convergence. Here [2] is a screenshot of the

Let me know if I should adapt the tests (i.e., if the failed convergence
is unavoidable or if it is avoidable but just not worth the time or
