New submission from Amaury Forgeot d Arc <amauryfa at gmail.com>:

The following script fails with pypy.  In CPython, builtin modules save their 
dict, (sys does it 
*before* sys.path has been created) and this saved dict is used to update the 
current module.

import sys
sys.path = ['foo'] + sys.path
assert sys.path[0] == 'foo'
