I found the problem. It was an obsolete package python-unit-1.4.1 from 
the SuSE repository devel:/languages:/python that installed old version
of the unittest.py into site-packages directory and shadowed the correct 
one. Somehow I installed it without even noticing :(
I've asked maintainers of this repository to remove the obsolete beast.

Sorry for the noise.
