[New-bugs-announce] [issue1291] test_resource fails on recent linux systems (

New submission from Matthias Klose:

The test_resource test fails at least on all non x86 linux systems; the
test case notes:

# Now check to see what happens when the RLIMIT_FSIZE is small.  Some
# versions of Python were terminated by an uncaught SIGXFSZ, but
# pythonrun.c has been fixed to ignore that exception.  If so, the
# write() should return EFBIG when the limit is exceeded.

however instead of EFBIG errno is set to ESPIPE, causing an IOException.
and letting the test fail.
