Greenlet dict wrapper behaves surprisingly on Travis #8

The addition of unrelated code led to a test failure:

It appears that the greenlet wrapper does not create distinct dict classes on each call but just one that shares the same data store within one greenlet.

That shouldn’t be a problem in practice, but it’s contrary to what the docs say.

I wasn’t able to trigger this bug locally. The test is commented out as of 1995a8b.

Re-activate test as it stopped failing
Switching py33-green to actually run w/ Python 3.3 helped. Leaving #8 open
though since it didn't make any sense. Waiting if it'll re-appear.

Making tox use actually Python 3.3 made it go away. This is really odd so I’m keeping this bug open.
