fyi, a "real world" example of how this comes up?   Construct a std::ifstream
using a pathname to a directory instead of a file.   Under Linux and MacOS at
least, the basic_filebuf code is happy to open such a pathname, but then will
get EISDIR when it first tries to read, and will throw an exception.
