Another test run before it likely breaks this test. Purely out of
curiosity, can you figure out the test that causes it to break, take
that and the test that is being broken, and then create the smallest
possible test suite that also breaks in a similar way (and post it here)?
In doing all of that, it turned out there was another source module
declaring a test with the same name. And it was that test that overrode
setup and caused the uninitialized references.
