assertSequenceEqual() raises BytesWarning when format failure report. See for example :

ERROR: test_close_fds_0_1 (test.test_subprocess.POSIXProcessTestCase)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/export/home/buildbot/64bits/3.x.cea-indiana-amd64/build/Lib/test/", line 1741, in test_close_fds_0_1

  File "/export/home/buildbot/64bits/3.x.cea-indiana-amd64/build/Lib/test/", line 1727, in check_close_std_fds
    self.assertEqual((out, err), (b'apple', b'orange'))
  File "/export/home/buildbot/64bits/3.x.cea-indiana-amd64/build/Lib/unittest/", line 820, in assertEqual
    assertion_func(first, second, msg=msg)
  File "/export/home/buildbot/64bits/3.x.cea-indiana-amd64/build/Lib/unittest/", line 1029, in assertTupleEqual
    self.assertSequenceEqual(tuple1, tuple2, msg, seq_type=tuple)
  File "/export/home/buildbot/64bits/3.x.cea-indiana-amd64/build/Lib/unittest/", line 967, in assertSequenceEqual
    (i, item1, item2))
BytesWarning: str() on a bytes instance


Proposed patch fixes message formatting and adds tests for assertions that can emit BytesWarning.

I think the change is good in spirit, especially using repr() and limiting the size. See the review for a couple problems.
