It strongly suggests that there's a bug in the managed debugger.  It seems
to be triggered by the use of __slots__.  We generate a backing CLR class
that's templated for Python classes that contain __slots__, and some of
the methods on the class are themselves templated but with a different
template argument.  You can still debug the code with an unmanaged debugger
(ie windbg) but it's a significantly less friendly experience.

I haven't yet gotten around to reporting this to the managed debug folks, or
creating a smaller test case.
