So, I have checked up this closed issue https://github.com/kondratyev-nv/vscode-python-test-adapter/issues/21#issue-376186670
And I found that this is the same problem as I have, and it seems that the author created a repository according to the same book which I am learning now (TDD Python 2014, O'Reilly) . So, since there is no pointed out solution for this problem I open (create) this issue again.
Repository to reproduce the issue: https://github.com/mishagin-tim/tdd-django.git
Before running please check out to the branch "issue-test-runner". And be careful, there is a hardcoded path to the geckodriver in the "functional_tests.py". I am planning to run it with a remote driver.
@mishagin-tim Thank you for the issue! Unfortunately, https://github.com/mishagin-tim/tdd-django.git gives me 404, is that ok? I'll try to look through other Django tutorials to reproduce the issue.
