The issue #23839 modified the test runner to always clear caches before running tests. As a side effect, test_warnings started to complain with:

Warning -- warnings.filters was modified by test_warnings

The issue comes from the following function of test_warnings/

def setUpModule():

I suggest to rewrite this function as a setUp/tearDown method in BaseTest and *restores* the old value of these dictionaries.

I guess that the bug affects all Python versions, even if only Python 3.7 logs a warning.
