py.test 2.1.3: just some more fixes

pytest-2.1.3 is a minor backward compatible maintenance release of the popular py.test testing tool. It is commonly used for unit, functional- and integration testing. See extensive docs with examples here:

The release contains another fix to the perfected assertions introduced with the 2.1 series as well as the new possibility to customize reporting for assertion expressions on a per-directory level.

If you want to install or upgrade pytest, just type one of:

pip install -U pytest # or
easy_install -U pytest

Thanks to the bug reporters and to Ronny Pfannschmidt, Benjamin Peterson and Floris Bruynooghe who implemented the fixes.
