You'll typically see that in code that's being executed from a 
dynamically created string in the code, which is going to make it *very* 
difficult to debug.

 >>> exec "1/0"
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ZeroDivisionError: integer division or modulo by zero
 >>> eval('1/0')
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ZeroDivisionError: integer division or modulo by zero
 >>>
