[New-bugs-announce] [issue14065] Element should support cyclic GC

New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:

The C implementation of xml.etree.ElementTree.Element needs to support cyclic GC. The attached script demonstrates the lack to support that: in 3.2, the script passes; in 3.3 (7697223df6df) it fails with an AssertionError as the cycle was not cleared. 

This is an incompatible change from 3.2.
