[New-bugs-announce] [issue20128] Re-enable test_modules_search_builtin() in test_pydoc

Eric Snow report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Eric Snow:

The test (added in issue #20123) broke one of the stable FreeBSD buildbots:


The log for that test run indicates the traceback and the test can be found in Lib/test/test_pydoc.py (PydocImportTest.test_modules_search_builtin).

The problem could be one (or more) of several possibilities:

* the test is broken in an esoteric way
* the buildbot has issues
* the platform has issues
* the test exposes some other underlying bug elsewhere

The test itself is not critical but I hope to re-enable it before beta 2 ends in a couple weeks.

Stefan: any insight you could offer on the problem, particularly relative to the platform and buildbot, would be greatly appreciated.
