Tests need to do their own setup. ZCML isn't magically loaded for tests, 
unless those tests are run within a layer that loads all ZCML before 
running the tests.

So, there are two options:
- modify the setUp() of the tests in question to 
- make the respective tests run in a layer that loads the ZCML. I don't 
think layer support is on the trunk yet. Whit Morriss has a branch where 
he added that to Zope 2, but it still hasn't been merged :(
