I see, but that TestCase-derived test class was being created by a
generator-style test, right? Unfortunately generator-style tests in py.test
have some edge cases, and it has been said that there's no plans to improve
on that area because generator-style tests have been supplanted by
parametrized tests[1].

Sorry I didn't elaborate further, just wanted to clarify that
setUp/tearDown are supported for "normal" xUnit subclasses. :)
