No, it's a feature. When encountering a subclass of unittest.TestCase,
nose simply uses unittest semantics. This lets it be backwards
compatible with all unittest test suites, even if they have been
customized. If you need nose features, you need to use functions or
classes that don't subclass from TestCase.
