Hmm, replying to myself, it seems that when I changed to 

   def setUp(self):
      self.dbpool = adbapi.ConnectionPool('psycopg', DSN)
      return self.dbpool.runInteraction(self._insertTestData)

my test seems to work. Could anyone confirm that setUp (and tearDown) are also allowed to return deferreds?

I have also another problem. In fact I need to run a few deferred-returning functions within setUp. How should I join them? I can create DeferredList but will it then be checked for failures?
