close has no effect on Mac OSX Python 3.0

I'm wondering if it's really a bug since it's so trivial:

    fp = open('/etc/services')
    ct =
    print(ct[-80:], end='')
    ct =

the second read should fail, but happily continues reading the file.
Really a bug?
As said in the subject, I use MacOSX 10.5.5 with Python 3.0,
officially released
these days.
