Try the following approach:

t=open(filename,'rb')
try:
  data=t.read()
  #processing data...
finally:
  t.close()

and see if that improves matters. If you want to add logging for a
quick check, then...

import logging

t=open(filename,'rb')
try:
  data=t.read()
  #processing data...
except:
  logging.exception("Failed to process file %r", filename)
finally:
  t.close()
