You still got that I-catch-all-except in there.
This will produce subtle bugs when you e.g. misspell a variable name:

filename = '/tmp/foo'
    f = open(fliename, 'r')
    raise "can't open filename"

Please notice the wrong-spelled 'fliename'.

This OTOH will give you more clues on what really goes wrong:

filename = '/tmp/foo'
    f = open(fliename, 'r')
except IOError:
    raise "can't open filename"
