The file object readline() and readlines() methods can lose data when an underlying read system call is interrupted.  They will abort with an IOError in this case but any incomplete line data they have read will be discarded.

readline() and readlines() should never raise an IOError for the EINTR interrupted system call case.  They should handle that gracefully, retrying their reads after letting any Python signal handlers run.
