In 3.2.2 and 3.2.3 on linux64, when running the following code. 

    try:
        print("Writing to /dev/full")

        with open("/dev/full", "w") as f:
             f.write("Write to full device")
    except:
        print("Catch, file closed?")

Using

    strace -e close ~/usr/python3.2.3/bin/python3 test.py
    ...
    Writing to /dev/full
    Catch, file closed?
    close(3)                                = 0

The file descriptor being used (3) to attempt writing to /dev/full is not closed until the process exits.

I expected this to be closed when leaving the context manager.
