Ok, I just ran the tests in a similar environment (Twisted-1.1.0,
Python-2.3.4), and I get failures in the same tests. Neither are cause for

Part of test_web needs to listen on a TCP port, and to avoid choosing a port
that's already in use, it listens on port "0" and then queries the port to
find out what number it picked. The technique for doing this changed in
Twisted at some point, and it looks like I moved the test to the new format
without updating the Twisted dependency (this test works ok on the current

The failure in test_slavecommand is just a brainskip on my part, but again
the problem is limited to the test case. An instance created for the tests
does not behave quite like the real class.. looks like I updated the class
without fixing the test. Bad programmer, no biscuit!

So it is safe to ignore these test failures. Sorry for the inconvenience! I
would still, however, encourage moving to Twisted-1.3.0 when you get a
chance, as that's the most recent version.
