[pytest-dev] Parametrized fixture fails when using unittest

I don't understand why the following test fixture works for the test
function, but fails for the test method. Am I doing something wrong, or
is this a bug?

$ cat t0_mine.py 
import pytest
import unittest

def param1(request):
    if request.param == 1:
        pytest.skip('not so good')
    yield request.param

def param2(request, param1):
    return (param1, request.param)

def param1a(request, param1):
    if param1 == 1:
        return 0
        return 7

def test_function(param2, param1a): 
    if param2[0] == 1:
        assert param1a == 0
        assert param1a == 7
@pytest.mark.usefixtures('param2', 'param1a')

$ py.test-3 t0_mine.py -v
