I get the following test failure against changeset 100576 on OSX 10.9.5:

$ ./python.exe -m test test_import
[1/1] test_import
test test_import failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/peteringlesby/src/cpython/Lib/test/test_import/", line 301, in test_timestamp_overflow
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '__pycache__/@test_68937_tmp.cpython-36.pyc'

1 test failed:

Sorry, I am unable to reproduce this on either 10.9.5 or current 10.11.3 OS X systems.  Is there something unusual about the working directory you are running the tests from, like residing on an NFS or other networked file system?  Any special ./configure options?  Does the test always fail?

I can reproduce it reliably.

I ran ./configure with --with-pydebug.

I'm not using NFS, and I'm not aware of anything else unusual about my filesystem.

The fact that a timestamp overflows in the failing test is a red herring -- the following also fails, with os.stat raising FileNotFoundError:

    def test_without_timestamp_overflow(self):
        sys.path.insert(0, os.curdir)
            source = TESTFN + ".py"
            compiled = importlib.util.cache_from_source(source)
            with open(source, 'w') as f:
            del sys.path[0]

I've verified that TESTFN does get imported by writing 'print("hello")' to the source file.

The problem is that I have PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE set in my environment.

Should the setUp and tearDown methods ensure that PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE is cleared and reset?

Ah, setting PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE explains it.  When running the tests via "make test", python is invoked with -E to avoid issues like that.  But here's a patch that skips test_timestamp_overflow if bytecode files cannot be written (Issue20796 documents a similar problem and workaround for test_import).

LGTM, Ned.
