Yes, I read it, but it does not find tests at all for instance :
Found 0 tests for Components.IO.ipb.tests.test_ipbreader
Found 0 tests for Components.IO.nifti.tests.test_niftiimage
instead of :
Found 8 tests for Components.IO.ipb.tests.test_ipbreader
Found 3 tests for Components.IO.nifti.tests.test_niftiimage
for a positive level.
As I do not want to run the tests, just the testsuite, I passed level

The problem is that it returns an empty test suite (I pass it to a
TextTestRunner instance, like in the example on python.org, but nothing

Thank you for the explanation on this one, but I can't use it, I need to
modify os.cwd so that it points to the correct path. In fact what I do is
create a subprocess for each test file as if it was started from its parnet
folder. This way, I do not have to write
load('folder1/folder2/folder3/tests/mydata'), only load('mydata'). I could
put everything in a global ata folder, but if I want only to execute the
tests in a specific file, I would not be able to do so, because os.cwd is
different. But I don't think there is a solution to this problem anyway.
