[New-bugs-announce] [issue17919] AIX POLLNVAL definition causes problems
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Delhallt:
I encounted exactly the same issue http://bugs.python.org/issue923315 with test_asyncore, test_asynchat and test_poll.
On AIX6.1, POLLNVAL=0x8000=SHRT_MIN=SHRT_MAX+1 (on 2 bytes) and parsing events with PyArg_ParseTuple as a signed short 'h' do not work, i.e
"OverflowError: signed short integer is greater than maximum" occurs.
I changed 'h' to 'H' in the attached patch, and delete associated Overflow test.
Perhaps, they're a better way to handle that ?
