Ok, I've checked out the relevant commit and I can reproduce the issue
there. I've also tried to compare the behaviour between the python2 and
python3 packages.

I think the reason why it might work for python3, and not python2, is
that the python2 package seems to include the -l option by default,
whereas the python3 package doesn't. Looking at the -l option, it's
something about detecting tests that leak memory, which doesn't sound
that important, so maybe the thing to do is to patch out the use of -l
in the python2 package.

What do you think?
