trace module and doctest

I am trying to use the trace module with the --count flag to test for
statement coverage in my doctests. The trace coverage listing is very
weird, marking many statements as unexecuted which were clearly executed
during the run (I can see their output on the screen). Is this some known
interaction between the trace and doctest modules?

Thanks,

Yes:

I'm trying to use both nosetests and doctest with the tests pulled out into a separate file. My problem is that it seems that I need to use different import statements depending on from where I run the tests. Here's my directory structure: /dir __init__.py /sub __init__.py

I've written a logging.filter and would like to use doctest on it (using a StreamHandler for stdout), but this doesn't seem possible. Output from the logger seems to disappear (running the doctest strings through the interpreter as-is yields expected results). I assume this is because doctest does something with logging. Is there any way to...
