Thank you,

That can happen due to network problems. I'd like to see the error though.

Good :)

I normally just run "python setup.py test" from the source directory or
"python run_tests.py" from the Tests subdirectory at the terminal, and
copy and paste the interesting bits of the output.

If you want to capture the test output to a file, you should probably redirect
both stdout and stderr:

python run_tests.py &> output.txt
