Thanks for the patch!  I'm leaving this open as dealing with the other aspect:

* Wrong attribute names around asserts: autospect/auto_spec -> autospec, set_spec -> spec_set

is still a possibility.  (given you also found a number of those in our codebase leading to hidden testing bugs)

Vedran: We're not claiming these are fixes for the fundamental problem.  But they are useful practical bandaids on the existing APIs that a hundred of millions of lines of existing unittest code around the world make use of to prevent common unintended consequences of our existing API's now well know flaws.  issue24651 looks like the better place to take up future design ideas.
