[New-bugs-announce] [issue38020] os.path.realpath crashes in Windows Store package

Steve Dower report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Steve Dower <steve.dower at python.org>:

When installed via the Store, "python3.8 -c 'import sysconfig'" crashes hard.

So far, I've discovered it's inside an os.path.realpath() call, and appears to be a refcounting issue (double DECREF I think), but haven't gotten any further yet.

I'm looking into it.
