Exceptions when closing a file

Closing a file can (I believe) raise an exception. Is that documented
anywhere? I've spent a lot of frustrating time trying to track this down,
with no luck, which suggests that either my google-foo is weak or that it
isn't documented. Is IOError the only exception it can raise?

The only thing I have found is this:

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-bugs-list/2004-November/026031.html

Out of curiosity, is there a simple way to demonstrate close() raising an
exception that doesn't involve messing about with disk quotas?
