For the problematic text we treat i-s-h as fake-essential, i.e. it is
installed at the very beginning (s.t. it is installed in the reference
system) and never purged.

Installing i-s-d does not create this, so they don't exist in the
reference system (that is compared against after installing and purging
the packages to be tested). They come into existence once i-s-h is
triggered by installing some package but are not cleaned up during
removal, so this does not match the reference system throwing piuparts
errors. Shipping them will solve this, as they already exist in the
reference system.
