[New-bugs-announce] [issue18019] dictionary views lead to segmentation fault

New submission from Marcin Szamotulski:

This simple snipet will crash python:
>>> d={}
>>> v=d.viewvalues()
>>> k=d.viewkeys()
>>> d[v]=k
>>> k
Segmentation fault

I am using python2.7.  Python3.2 does not have views while .keys() and .values() methods raise RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded, which is expected.
