-bb option helps debug because it detects errors earlier (comparing byte and unicode strings looks strange, it should be a bug).

Attached patch re-exec with -bb if -bb was not used.

+1 to force -bb on buildbots
-1 to hack regrtest.

IMHO it should be added to ./ and PCbuild/rt.bat, like other warning switches ( "-Wd" "-tt" "-3").

I think that it's already enabled, but I'm not sure.

Does someone use We should maybe improve this script instead of

There are currently (at least) two places where regrtest is invoked by the buildbots, one for unix and one for windows.  The flags used are not always in sync, but probably should be.

I think it is probably better to not hack regrtest for this, since that would actually reduce its flexibility, but I'm open to argument on that. I'm going to set myself up an alias for running the tests:

   alias pytest="./python -E -tt -bb -Wd -3 -m test.regrtest"

That form for running regrtest should probably be added to the dev docs as a recommendation.
