I expect the following test to fail, because an "error" is not a "failure".
Unexpectedly, the test passes:

```
class TestFailure(unittest.TestCase):

    @unittest.expectedFailure
    def test_expected_failure(self):
        raise TypeError()   # for example, a typo.
```

```
$ python -m unittest test_main
x
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ran 1 test in 0.000s

OK (expected failures=1)
```

This behaviour exists since Python 2.7, and is still true for the Python 3.8.0b1
