Further investigation shows that the extra lines are not showing up when running the test outside of the test harness with the output not redirected.

If the STDOUT (SYS$OUTPUT) is temporarily redirected before running the test from DCL, two output files result. First a file with the expected output, and then an empty file with the same name but a newer version.

VMS is outputting extra blank lines in the output.

For example a recipe line "@continue" results in a blank line in the output.

I am patching my local copy of the test harness to not consider this a test failure until I can fix this.
