Issue #22599 changed from using to having a module-level reference to _builtin_open, stored by doing _builtin_open = open. However, on reloading the module, _builtin_open is pointed to from the last execution of the code, breaking

>>> import tokenize
<function open at 0x7f15b660fc80>
>>> tokenize._builtin_open
<built-in function open>
>>> import imp; imp.reload(tokenize)
<module 'tokenize' from '/home/takluyver/miniconda3/envs/py34/lib/python3.4/'>
<function open at 0x7f15b660fbf8>
>>> tokenize._builtin_open
<function open at 0x7f15b660fc80>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/takluyver/miniconda3/envs/py34/lib/python3.4/", line 438, in open
    buffer = _builtin_open(filename, 'rb')
TypeError: open() takes 1 positional argument but 2 were given

The actual case where I'm seeing this error is nose logging a failure in a test suite, so it's not clear what is reloading tokenize, but it appears that something is. This just started failing when our Windows test system updated to Python 3.4.3.

Patch attached to fix this.

The same issue exists in Lib/, Lib/, Tools/freeze/

May be write a code as

from builtins import open as _builtin_open

-B.patch as Serhiy suggests, for tokenize only for the time being.

LGTM. Do you want to write a patch for other cases Thomas?
msg237790 - (view) Author: Thomas Kluyver (takluyver) * Date: 2015-03-10 18:14
Fixed the other three cases you pointed out (-B2.patch).

Is there a method to detect other reload bugs?

Only grep.
