Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

Benjamin: Previously, .currentframe() == sys._getframe() == sys._getframe(0) but you redefined it as sys._getframe(1), which is a change in semantics. Is this intentional (ie, was it buggy before)?

William: Benjamin's point was that the bug was not the doc but the implementation of .currentframe, so we were making the wrong fix relative to the intention of .currentframe.
