IsolatedAsyncioTestCase freezes whenever an exception that inherits from BaseException is raised:

import unittest
class TestHangsForever(unittest.IsolatedAsyncioTestCase):
    async def test_hangs_forever(self):
        raise BaseException("Hangs forever")
if __name__ == "__main__":
    import unittest

A kind of similar issue present on 3.7 was fixed on 3.8 here, where BaseExceptions would not be correctly handled by the event loop, this seems somewhat related.

I had a look at IsolatedAsyncioTestCase implementation, did not spot any obvious broken thing there, I could use some light here. Thanks.

Here is a variant that also hangs, I suspect for the same reason. The task raises asyncio.CancelledError which inherits from BaseException and my guess is it somehow kills the event loop.

import asyncio
import unittest

class DemonstrateHang(unittest.IsolatedAsyncioTestCase):
    async def test_hang(self):
        task = asyncio.create_task(asyncio.sleep(2))
        await asyncio.sleep(0.1)
        await task
        # this also hangs: await asyncio.wait_for(task, 5)
