Default Re: Cross validation and data snooping

One thing that makes me really suspicious about scaling non-isotropically on all features is the beaviour of SVM classifiers under Python scikit-learn package.
If I don't scale data, cross-validation is basically useless, cause just a couple of values for the error are generated (how likely is that?!?).

I wonder if it is a package bug, or if there is some countermeasure that should be taken
