Well, so far, you didn't say that it was testUnicodeOpen that
failed. Now that I see that, I can understand the problem.

In your original message, I failed to see a problem. Yes, the repr
is inconsistent - but why is that a problem? (and then, why does
it actually cause real problems in the test suite on Vista - as
it turns out, the inconsistency causes no problems in the testsuite
at all)

I cannot understand how this contributes to solving the problem. -1.

As it is clearly the test suite that is broken, we should just fix the
test suite. If the two chunks in the test, only the second chunk is
relevant for fixing the problem.
