A reportlab user running via mod_python+django (Python 2.5.2 and mod_python
3.3.1) reports a strange intermittent error involving failure to read files
which are known to be present.
After some debugging efforts we got this clearer error message
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/reportlab/lib/utils.py", line 810,
f = open(self.fn,'wb')
IOError: file() constructor not accessible in restricted mode
this is not the original error, but part of our efforts to debug; however, the
original error was during an attempt to read a file so presumably open was not
Googling the error indicates something to do with restricted
I thought that restricted mode died ages ago.
Any ideas what could be causing this?
