[New-bugs-announce] [issue30233] [3.5] Warning -- locale was modified by test_idle

STINNER Victor report at bugs.python.org
Tue May 2 12:21:24 EDT 2017

New submission from STINNER Victor:

Importing idlelib.IOBinding modifies the LC_CTYPE locale. For example, this module is imported by idlelib.EditorWindow which is imported by idlelib.idle_test.test_formatparagraph.

As a consequence, running test_idle changes locales and the following warning is logged:

[3.5] Warning -- locale was modified by test_idle


I didn't check yet why I only see this warning on 3.5 buildbots.
