Have you considered sending a pull request instead of filing an issue?
The best way to report a bug is to provide the TestNG team with a full test case reproducing the issue. Maybe you can write a runnable test case (check the
src/test/ folder for examples) and propose it in a pull request Don't worry if the CI fails because it is the expected behavior. This pull request will be a perfect start to find the fix :)
