"2.7.6 or 3.4.1 with OS X 10.8. I can only reproduce it an automated test environment when the load is high on the machine. I've also seen it with 10.6/10.7. It's definitely inconsistently reproducible."

I'm surprised that the Python read() method doesn't handle EINTR internally.

I'm in favor of handling EINTR internally almost everywhere, I mean in the Python modules implemented in the C, not in each call using these C methods. "handling EINTR" means calling PyErr_CheckSignals() which may raises a Python exception (ex: KeyboardInterrupt).
