Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

As near as I can tell, for 2.5.2 and 3.0c1, the limitation on compile
only applies when the last line only contains a comment.

>>> print (compile("def f():\n  pass #haha",'','exec'))
<code object <module> at 00AADAD0, file "", line 1>

>>> print (compile("def f():\n  pass\n#haha",'','exec')) # or
>>> print (compile("def f():\n  pass\n  #haha",'','exec'))
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "", line 3

I would prefer more consistent behavior.  I have opened a separate doc
issue that includes the documentation of this issue.
