This is a stupid bug (*), but I'm not sure if I can just fix this
without breaking deployed code.
My current idea is to 1) issue a warning if "frombuffer" is called with
default arguments, and 2) fix the documentation to mention the bug and
how to work around it in a backward- *and* forward-compatible way.
*) PIL's extended test suite does careful tests on "frombuffer",
comparing the output to that of "fromstring", but I clearly forgot
to include the default argument case in those test :-(
