Hello.
I found a bug in unittest sample code.
http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/unittest.html#unittest-minimal-example
(naming this code as test_sample.py)

I got this error.
$ python3.2 test_sample.py
..E
======================================================================
ERROR: test_shuffle (__main__.TestSequenceFunctions)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "test_sample.py", line 11, in test_shuffle
    random.shuffle(self.seq)
  File
"/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.1/lib/python3.1/random.py",
line 270, in shuffle
    x[i], x[j] = x[j], x[i]
TypeError: 'range' object does not support item assignment

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ran 3 tests in 0.004s

I think this code should be fixed with attached patch.
Regards.
