No such problem on installed 3.4.3.

The failure can be reproduced on Linux if make the Lib/__pycache__/ directory non-writable.

IIRC there's an existing issue for this. (Or it may have just been mentioned in a "things that don't work when you're not root" list on an issue.)

Existing issue21264 reports about failure of different test. It may be the same issue or different but related issues.
msg250697 - (view) Author: Brett Cannon (brett.cannon) * (Python committer) Date: 2015-09-14 18:02
It sounds like some tests just need to have a decorator that blocks execution if the relevant __pycache__ isn't writable.

Here is a patch that should work. Can someone who has had the problem test it? It works in my limited testing but I want to make sure this solves it before I commit it.

Here is a new patch that addresses Serhiy's comments.

Do you want to backport the fix to 3.4 (and 2.7?)? Issue21264 was reported for 3.4.
msg252723 - (view) Author: Brett Cannon (brett.cannon) * (Python committer) Date: 2015-10-10 16:08
I feel I have already spent way too much time on this issue, but if you want to backport even further then feel free to.
