True, there's a whole bunch of them (mostly duplicates):

Bug #1076985: Incorrect behaviour of StreamReader.readline leads to 
crash (fixed)
Bug #1089395: segfault/assert in tokenizer (fixed)
Bug #1098990: codec readline() splits lines apart (fixed)
Bug #1163244: Syntax error on large file with MBCS encoding (open)
Bug #1175396: codecs.readline sometimes removes newline chars (open)
Bug #1178484: Erroneous line number error in Py2.4.1 (open)
Bug #1200686: SyntaxError raised on win32 for correct files (open, 
probably duplicate)
Bug #1211639: parser tells invalid syntax with correct code (duplicate)
Bug #1218930: Parser chokes on big files (duplicate)
Bug #1225059: Line endings problem with Python 2.4.1 cause imports to 
fail (duplicate)
Bug #1241507: StreamReader broken for byte string to byte string codecs 
Bug #1251631: Python 2.4.1 crashes when importing the attached script 
(open, probably duplicate)
Patch #1101726: Patch for potential buffer overrun in tokenizer.c (applied)

Most of them are fixed. #1178484 is waiting for a final OK.
