[New-bugs-announce] [issue10979] setUpClass exception causes explosion with "-b"

New submission from Brandon Craig Rhodes <brandon at rhodesmill.org>:

Normally, unittest cleanly reports an exception in a setUpClass method. But if I place the attached test in a directory by itself and then run "python -m unittest discover -b" from inside of the same directory, then instead of being shown the setUpClass exception I am instead shown a long traceback because unittest seems to think that it has put a stringIO in place of sys.stdout but a file is there instead.
