The relevant comment at Stack Overflow is:

It looks like it's a bug in the documentation. The 'equivalent' code working in python2, but not in python3, where it has an infinite loop.

And the latest version of the documentation has the same problem: http://docs.python.org/release/3.1.2/library/functions.html

Look like change r61361 was the problem, as it merged changes from python 2.6 without verifying that they were correct for python 3.
