The fact that the problem is "elementary" in some sense feels significant, but it might not be: this pair of questions is what I had in mind for a nonexample, although it loosely satisfies all the criteria above except "elementary".
My gut always wants to close the later question as a duplicate to consolidate discussion, but the surface-level questions being asked are not really the same (at all). So I thought I'd ask the community to see if you had any insight here.
