The following example works on Python 2.7 and 3.2, but fails on Python 3.3:
-----------
import errno
import os

try:
    os.rmdir("testdir")
except:
    pass
os.mkdir("testdir")

try:
    try:
        os.mkdir("testdir")
    except IOError as exc:
        # If can't get proper access, then just forget about writing
        # the data.
        if exc.errno == errno.EACCES:
            pass
        else:
            raise
    except OSError as exc:
        # Probably another Python process already created the dir.
        if exc.errno == errno.EEXIST:
            pass
        else:
            raise
except Exception:
    print("PEP 3151 broke backward compatibility on such pattern!")
-----------

I noticed the problem while reading the changeset e4d44c2e8e81.
