My intent was to spawn another process for the server independent of the test. Obviously I'm doing something wrong. I've made several guesses commenting pieces of code (tearDown method for example) but I didn't manage to solve the problem(s).

In addition to using print(), in some places I like using input() instead, as in:
     input('x={}, y={} --> '.format(x, y))
Then the program stops at that point so you can study it.
To continue just press <Enter>, or Ctrl-C to abort.
