OK, I understand better what's going on.  The test should indeed fail,
depending on where you run it from.  The setup function in the test
suite is

def setup():
    """Setup testenvironment for the module:

            - Adds dummy home dir tree
    """
    try:
        os.makedirs("home_test_dir/_ipython")
    except WindowsError:
        pass #Or should we complain that the test directory already exists??

but the failing test sets homedir below the current path.  So
depending on where you are positioned in the path when you run the
test suite, this can indeed fail.

I'm fixing up the whole test suite now, because there are some other
problems, I'll post soon.  But you shold be able to verify the failure
by running

iptest -vvs

from some other location in the filesystem than the ipython test directory...

Cheers,

f
