Issue #14113 pointed out that doesn't check if tests mucked with the locale after running.

Here's a test that checks for changes to the locale.

Thanks for the patch, but I think Brett meant to say that this should be added to Lib/test/, among the other resources.

Patch to check if locale was changed.

Since I'm not sure where to put tests for test.regrtest, I created 
new file, test.test_regrtest.

Sorry it took so wrong to get to this. It simply fell out of my purview.

I had to back out this changeset as it totally broke the test suite here:

[ 91/372/90] test_defaultdict
test test_defaultdict crashed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/default/Lib/test/", line 1287, in runtest_inner
    with saved_test_environment(test, verbose, quiet) as environment:
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/default/Lib/test/", line 1251, in __enter__
    in self.resource_info())
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/default/Lib/test/", line 1250, in <genexpr>
    self.saved_values = dict((name, get()) for name, get, restore
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/default/Lib/test/", line 1237, in get_locale
    return tuple(map(locale.getlocale, self._locale_categories))
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/default/Lib/", line 523, in getlocale
    raise TypeError('category LC_ALL is not supported')
