test_startup_imports fails in test_site when executed from within a virtual environment (venv). Test passes when not executed within a venv.

$ python -m test test_site

[1/1] test_site
test test_site failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/software/python/lib/python3.4/test/", line 451, in test_startup_imports
    self.assertFalse(modules.intersection(re_mods), stderr)
AssertionError: {'sre_parse', '_sre', 'sre_constants', 're', 'sre_compile'} is not false

It looks like the venv checking machinery in was changed in 3.4 to import re conditionally if in a venv (in 3.3, it was an unconditional import). This doesn't seem wrong, so ISTM the test needs changing (it already contains exceptions for particular cases, e.g. OS X, because _osx_support uses re - this seems to be an analogous case).

I close the issue. This bug has no activity for 6 years and was reported on Python 3.4, whereas the development branch is now the future Python 3.9. If you can still reproduce the issue, please reopen the issue or open a new issue (add a reference to this one).
