Ideally, for every instance of the test suite a separate database will be available. If you as a developer run two test suites simultaneously, or in the same day (maybe different subsets of tests or the same tests from two machines) you'll hit different databases. Without a sandbox, you'll experience intermittent failures due to concurrency, or tests that cannot start because of a wrong schema deployed on the common database, or where wrong fixtures have been loaded.
