I am also running into this problem. I'm not 100%, but I'm pretty sure that looping over sys.modules and accessing __warningregistry__ on each module triggers one of my module's __getattr__ functions (PEP 562), which in turn uses setuptools entry points to import an arbitrary set of other modules.

Bizarrely, however, I cannot reproduce on macOS, only Linux. Presumably there's something platform dependent about how the default unittest test runner orders my tests, and hence which modules have already been loaded by the time I call assertWarnsRegex.
