Heh... building on Serhiy's example:

>>> f.tell()
680564735109527527154978616360239628288

I'm way out of my depth here. The results seem surprising, but I lack the experience to be able to say what they "should" look like. So I guess if it's working as intended and just needs clarification in the documentation, so be it.

Thanks for pointing out what's actually causing the behavior.
