Whatever the change, bytes and bytearray should act the same.

>>> b = bytes(range(8))
>>> b
>>> b.partition(3)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#2>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: expected bytes, bytearray or buffer compatible object

As noted in the thread, ba.partition(a) apparently is executed as ba.partition(bytearray(a)) if a is not a bytearray (or maybe not a buffer object). bytearray(3) == bytearray((0,0,0)) and the latter is not in ba and hence the output given is 'correct'.
