[Biopython-dev] Failing unit tests under Windows

I run python 2.3.5 on Windows, and compile from source with MSCV 6.0
(which is a different setup to the one Michiel uses for the builds).
I just thought I should document the unit test oddities I see on this

test_ProtPram - fails with a single floating point difference, 0.562
versus 0.563.

test_Wise - doesn't fail gracefully due to a problem detecting dnal

test_psw - fails due to a "doctest of" versus "Doctest: " string
difference.  This may be due to the different version of python?  We
can probably fix this in run_tests.py

test_KDTree - fails with ImportError: No module named _CKDTree
I do select yes when asked if I want to build Bio.KDTree - does this
work for anyone under Windows?
