googling on test_guess_all_types nails it:


Jeff Epler reported there, in a reply to you about the same thing in 2.3.1,
that test_urllib2 interferes with test_mimetypes (when run in that order),
and included a patch claimed to fix it.  Of course, since he didn't put the
patch on SF, it just got lost.
