The value SyntaxError.offset is for most SyntaxErrors an offset from
beginning of line SyntaxError.lineno. In case of an triple-quoted string
which is not at all closed, offset seems to be the offset from beginning
of the buffer.

sometimes offset is None...

def blub(bla, blub=None, blabla):

non-default argument follows default argument

Confirmed in trunk and py3k.

This will go nowhere until someone supplies a patch.  I'm assuming unit tests can be built using the attached test file.

None offsets gone in r84931.

Fixed in Python 3.2 alpha 3, so there's no longer any work to be done for this issue.  Closing.
