The tests were removed during the update from 2.5 to 2.5.1, in this
commit:

http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewcvs/rpms/python/F-8/python.spec?r1=1.106&r2=1.107

FWIW (and for those who want a little less verbosity than strace
provides), you could also do something like this to find the file:

$ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Oct 30 2007, 13:54:11) 
[GCC 4.1.2 20070925 (Red Hat 4.1.2-33)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import gpod
>>> print gpod.__file__
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/gpod/__init__.pyc
