Things that cause trouble

Coverage works well, and I want it to properly measure any Python program, but there are some situations it can’t cope with. This page details some known problems, with possible courses of action, and links to coverage.py bug reports with more information.
I would love to hear from you if you have information about any of these problems, even just to explain to me why you want them to start working properly.
If your problem isn’t discussed here, you can of course search the coverage.py bug tracker directly to see if there is some mention of it.
There are a number of popular modules, packages, and libraries that prevent coverage.py from working properly:
Some packages interfere with coverage measurement, but you might be able to make it work by using the --timid command-line switch, or the [run] timid=True configuration option.
