The IronPython team is aware of this problem, it was caused by a 'bug' 
in the tools that package the installer.

A simple workaround (that will probably work) is to copy the unittest 
package from a CPython 2.7 installation into your IronPython Lib 
directory. In IronPython 2.7 the unittest package is missing some files.

All the best,
