I don't understand what you're talking about. Which mutable objects
exactly? I'm talking about copying the dict before setUp.

They are not sharing it, since setUp will usually create the state
anew. What we're talking about is cleaning up the state after tearDown
is run, instead of waiting for the next setUp call.
