cStringIO.StringIO has no write method?

This program:

import sys
import traceback
import cStringIO

a = 1.0
b = 0.0
try:
c=a/b
except:
f = cStringIO.StringIO('')
ei = sys.exc_info()
traceback.print_exception(ei[0],ei[1],ei[2],file=f)

raises this exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Documents and Settings/gandalf/test.py", line 12, in ?
traceback.print_exception(ei[0],ei[1],ei[2],file=f)
File "C:\Python24\Lib\traceback.py", line 124, in print_exception
_print(file, 'Traceback (most recent call last):')
File "C:\Python24\Lib\traceback.py", line 13, in _print
file.write(str+terminator)
AttributeError: 'cStringIO.StringI' object has no attribute 'write'

What is 'cStringIO.StringI' anyway? Shouldn't it be 'cStringIO.StringIO'?

See http://docs.python.org/lib/module-cStringIO.html:

"""
Another difference from the StringIO module is that calling StringIO() with
a string parameter creates a read-only object. Unlike an object created
without a string parameter, it does not have write methods. These objects
are not generally visible. They turn up in tracebacks as StringI and
StringO.

Looks like I did not read the manual carefully, overlooked/misunderstood
this and posted too early.
I'm sorry!
