[Python-Dev] Mac popups running make test

I haven't run the test suite in awhile. I am in the midst of running it on
my Mac running Yosemite 10.10.3. Twice now, I've gotten this popup:

I assume this is testing some server listening on localhost. Is this a new
thing, either with the Python test suite or with Mac OS X? (I'd normally be
hidden behind a NAT firewall, but at the moment I am on a miserable public
connection in a Peet's Coffee, so it takes on slightly more importance...)

I've also seen the Crash Reporter pop up many times, but as far as I could
tell, in all cases the test suite output told me it was expected. Perhaps
tests which listen for network connections should also mention that, at
least on Macs?
