The failing test is a functional test, not a unit test;  I don't run
them by default when I check in.  I see a couple of problem points:  the
biggest is the use in the output of 'checkSiteManager.html' of a repr'ed
dict, which might render differently between different machines (or even
the same machine across Python versions).  This is a classic case where
the "doctest" does *not* provide clarity over a "traditional" 'unittest'
style test, IMNSHO.

I'm not sure what it is testing, either;  CC'ing Phillip, whose
fingerprints are on it, according the 'svn blame', for clarification.
