I'm pretty sure the test_pow and test_charmapcodec failures aren't my doing.

test_builtin fails because raw_input() isn't stripping a trailing newline.
I've got my own code in this area that *may* be to blame, but I don't see
how it could be.  I note that fileobject.c's new function get_line_raw has
the comment

/* Internal routine to get a line for raw_input():
   strip trailing '\n', raise EOFError if EOF reached immediately

but the code doesn't look for a trailing newline (let alone strip one).
