With python-3.0, array.fromfile() fails to insert values when EOFError
is raised. I ran the attached test case with python-3.0.1 and got the
same result on both linux and windows. With python-2.x, the values are
properly inserted despite an EOFError, as the documentation states it

array.fromfile(f, n)

Read n items (as machine values) from the file object f and append them
to the end of the array. If less than n items are available, EOFError is
raised, but the items that were available are still inserted into the
array. f must be a real built-in file object; something else with a
read() method won’t do.
