New submission from Benjamin Peterson <musiccomposition at gmail.com>:

$ ./python.exe -c "import sys; sys.stdin.read()"

In 2.6, this returns, but in 3.0, it still hangs despite having gotten
EOF. When a KeyboardInterrupt is given, this is the traceback:

^CTraceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/temp/python/py3k/Lib/io.py", line 1692, in read
    decoder.decode(self.buffer.read(), final=True))
  File "/temp/python/py3k/Lib/io.py", line 923, in read
    chunk = self.raw.read()
