[New-bugs-announce] [issue34346] dir() hangs interpreter

New submission from Chris Fuller <cfuller732 at thinkingplanet.net>:

It's a little obscure. Nothing to get alarmed about, probably. It involves recursion and __getattr__() during object creation.

Only present with 2.7 new-style classes. Old-style 2.7 did not exhibit this behavior nor did 3.x. Checked on Linux/Cygwin/Windows.
