New submission from James G. sack (jim):

The streamreader in utf_8_sig.py fails when asked to read a specified 
bytelength of data that ends up in the middle of a multibyte utf8 code.

I will attached a atandalone unittest (which does work from autotest, but 
doesn't use test_support), test_utf8sig_stream.py.

I will attach a patch (applied to the trunk 2.6 version), u8sig26.diff.
