Maybe it was not a good example after all. :) I just realized that, 
according to adt-run, the tests were failed. I didn't notice this before 
because there was nothing at the end of adt-run's output that would 
indicate that something went awry.

The “failures” was caused by the following misfeature of the 
specification: “if a test […] prints to stderr, it is considered to have 
failed.” But nosetests does print stuff to stderr even if everything is 
all right (see bug #460242).
