I've attached an alternative test case.

I'm not sure if there is a more robust way to test:
self.assert_('SyntaxError' in err.decode('ascii', 'ignore'))

Due the use of 'SyntaxtError' directly as string. I would prefer something like str(SyntaxtError) (or just the name of the exception
without extra text)

Review is welcome
