Sorry, but that's not a reason to repost your question to this list. If you have to ask somewhere else, it would be python-list, aka, comp.lang.python.
I figured it belonged here because the question is really about the internal implementation of file objects, which to me didn't seem like a question about using Python. But I'll give it a few days and send another mail there if still haven't found the answer by then.
