Fixed in the 2.7 branch.  The existing patch in the 3.3 and 3.4 branches is incomplete and does not actually fix the problem.  Despite what the Misc/NEWS entry claims.  The patch I am attaching now (applies to 3.3, I will forward port it to 3.4) fixes the remaining issue with zipimport failing subimports when the zip file has changed while the process is running.

Marking as a release blocker as one of the following needs to happen for both 3.3 and 3.4 prior to their final release:

A) The -gps05 patch needs to be applied (and forward ported to 3.4); I can do that.

B) The Misc/NEWS entry claiming that this issue is fixed should simply be removed from the Misc/NEWS file and the releases should happen without this patch.  After 3.4.0 and 3.3.4 I will commit this patch and re-add the Misc/NEWS entry under the 3.4.1 and 3.3.5 sections.

Release managers for 3.3 and 3.4, please chime in. (+nosy'd)
