nosepipe error

Hi folks.

I'm using (or trying to use) nosepipe to get nose test isolation; I'm
working on an almost-big test suite, and the tests appear to be
lacking test isolation.

I'm encountering a bug in nosepipe:
ERROR: testCreateFileMux (testFilemux.TestFilemux)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/dstromberg/virtualenvs/dev/lib/python2.7/site-packages/nose/",
line 133, in run
  File "/home/dstromberg/virtualenvs/dev/lib/python2.7/site-packages/nose/",
line 151, in runTest
  File "/home/dstromberg/virtualenvs/dev/lib/python2.7/site-packages/",
line 179, in __call__
    (header + data).decode("latin1"))
Exception: short message body (want 1433299041, got 80)
Something went wrong
Message: Unhandled exception in thread started by
sys.excepthook is missing
lost sys.stderr

That 1433299041 looks like ASCII:
>>> hex(1433299041)
>>> chr(0x55) + chr(0x6e) + chr(0x68) + chr(0x61)

...but I'm not sure where to go with that from there.

The authors appear to be: John J. Lee, Dan McCombs, and Vadim Markovtsev.

I've e-mailed John and Dan - though that was only last night.  I don't
know how to get in touch with Vadim.

Are there any nosepipe users out there?  Does anyone know how best to
reach John, Dan and/or Vadim?
