[Grok-dev] Running grok tests on python2.5

When running the Grok tests on Python-2.5 (I know, not yet "blessed" :) 
I get two failures, one in grok/tests/view/unassociated.py and one in 

In both case it is the output of showwarning() that differs from the 
expected output, because there's some extra garbage characters at the end.


1) Can anyone confirm this?

2) Does anyone have an idea where the garbage characters come from?

3) I tried to figure out what showwarning() actually is/does, but I 
cannot really find it anywhere. Can anyone tell me what it is?

4) Does it make sense to fix it (I could do that when I figure out what 
the exact cause is)? For example, the latest Ubuntu ships with just 
python-2.5 installed (by default)...

kind regards,

ps. I do not really want to go into a discussion about whether zope/grok 
shouldn't really be blessed for python 2.5 by now etc. etc. I just think 
it makes sense to fix these two failures.
