Puzzled by py.test output

I'm seeing a strange difference between error reporting
on local versus global variables, when using py.test.
Upon error, the actual value of a local is reported, but
not of a global. Does anyone know why? I'm using
the latest development version of py.test (from subversion).

Example code in file test.py:

--
def test_h():
     h = 0
     assert h == 1

g = 0
def test_g():
     assert g == 1
--

py.test output:

============================= test process starts ========
testing-mode: inprocess
executable:   /usr/local/bin/python  (2.4.2-final-0)
using py lib: /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/py <rev unknown>

test.py[2] FF
