[New-bugs-announce] [issue32703] 'async with' somehow suppresses unawaited coroutine warnings

New submission from Nathaniel Smith <njs at pobox.com>:

Example (minimal version of https://github.com/python-trio/trio/issues/425):


async def open_file():

async def main():
    async with open_file():  # Should be 'async with await open_file()'

coro = main()


Here we accidentally left out an 'await' on the call to 'open_file', so the 'async with' tries to look up 'CoroutineType.__aexit__', which obviously doesn't exist, and the program crashes with an AttributeError("__aexit__"). Yet weirdly, this doesn't trigger a warning about 'open_file' being unawaited. It should!

Yury's theory: maybe BEFORE_ASYNC_WITH's error-handling path is forgetting to DECREF the object.
