What permissions do your files have? If they're not readable for
whatever reason, you would be SOL no matter what. The only fixable
issue I am aware of is that nosetests does not like to collect tests
in executable files (nose 0.11 has an option to permit that). However,
I don't know why such a standard installation would do either of those
