[New-bugs-announce] [issue12688] ConfigParser.__init__(iterpolation=None) documentation != behavior

New submission from John Simon <john at johnsoft.com>:

The ConfigParser docs say that when __init__ is called with interpolation=None, no interpolation occurs. But when this is done in Python 3.2.1, it actually results in an AttributeError upon getting or setting a value, due to self._interpolation being set to None.

This incredibly simple patch brings the behavior inline with the docs.
