FYI, I'm the one who created this problem back in 2012.  I just submitted a GDB patch for this, using PyImport_AppendInittab to define the built-in module at startup.  I'm not sure how I missed this originally; perhaps the documentation was not as clear back then or maybe I just overlooked the information.  The patch eliminates the call to _PyImport_FixBuiltins.
