Here's a paragraph from the Python API manual addressing this subject:
    Note also that several of these functions take FILE* parameters. On
    particular issue which needs to be handled carefully is that the FILE
    structure for different C libraries can be different and incompatible.
    Under Windows (at least), it is possible for dynamically linked
    extensions to actually use different libraries, so care should be
    taken that FILE* parameters are only passed to these functions if
    it is certain that they were created by the same library that the
    Python runtime is using.
