Are you reusing the webtest.TestApp object across tests? I mean something like 

class TestFoo(TestCase):

    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        TestCase.__init__(self, *args, **kwargs)
        self.app = webtest.TestApp(... whatever ...)

    def test_one(self):

    def test_two(self):

test_one() and test_two() wouldn't be isolated. The first test to be run could 
affect the result of the second one if cookies are used.

Making sure that each test uses a fresh test application should be enough. A 
setUp() like this following is all you should need:

    def setUp(self):
        wsgiapp = loadapp('config:test.ini', relative_to=conf_dir)
        self.app = TestApp(wsgiapp)

Although if you're using Pylons it'd need a few more lines:

Please let me know if that solves the problem. If not, please post the test 
case with the three tests, and the setUp() and __init__() methods.
