[New-bugs-announce] [issue13310] asyncore handling of out-of-band data fails

New submission from Xavier de Gaye <xdegaye at gmail.com>:

Add the following lines to test_handle_expt (this makes sense, a
dispatcher instance is supposed to implement handle_read and call recv
in order to detect that the remote end has closed the socket):

--- a/Lib/test/test_asyncore.py
+++ b/Lib/test/test_asyncore.py

             def handle_expt(self):
                 self.flag = True
+            def handle_read(self):
+                self.recv(1)
         class TestHandler(BaseTestHandler):
             def __init__(self, conn):
                 BaseTestHandler.__init__(self, conn)

With these lines added, the test now fails on linux with Python 3.3,
see the following backtrace: select (an poll) returns a read event and
an exceptional condition for the socket, but there is no normal data
to read, only out-of-band data.

The attached patch fixes the problem.
