New submission from Ian Delaney <della5 at iinet.com.au>:

another one to the list.
tests in mechanize(-0.2.5) sees pypy failing to import its own module.

from mechanize-0.2.5/test/test_unittest.py;

    def test_loadTestsFromName__module_not_loaded(self):
        # We're going to try to load this module as a side-effect, so it
        # better not be loaded before we try.
        # Why pick audioop? Google shows it isn't used very often, so there's
        # a good chance that it won't be imported when this test is run
        module_name = 'audioop'

        import sys

It occurs twice in 2 tests of similar names;

I tried it in a pypy interpreter and was amazed to find it to import only a
handful of modules from the folder

It definitely can't manage it.
from the irc:#pypy
