How do I find what kind of exception is thrown.

Oh yes, and on a UNIX host such as Solaris the command "man 2 intro" will 
normally show you the intro to section 2 (system calls) and include a listing 
of all the errno values and their meanings.

You can probably deduce the system call from the python stack trace, so if it 
is, say, read, then "man 2 read" should include the relevant error codes and 
their cuasing circumstances.
