Facundo Batista <facundo at taniquetil.com.ar> added the comment:

In Linux, it seems to be the behaviour of the underlying C function 'fread'.

Do you think it's ok to add the following line in the read() documentation?

As this function depends of the underlying C function :cfunc:`fread`,
inheritates its behaviour in details like caching EOF and others.

Assigning this to George, to reword that in nicer English and apply.
