Testing Flows in managed solution creates unmanaged layer

How can I test a flow without the creation of an unmanaged layer for the flow?


I want to test a scheduled flow in the production environment, where it was imported via a managed solution. To do so I have to open the flow in edit mode. When I click the test button I need to confirm with "Save and Test"


This triggers the test and the test works but it also creates an unmanaged layer for the flow in the environment. No changes were done to the flow which should have been saved.

The unmanaged layer will prevent any updates being activated when the flow was updated by upgrading/updating the managed solution afterwards.
