You are saying that your use case fails, but we don't know which part
of cpyext is causing the failure.  I can point to the whole tests of
cpyext (they are in pypy/module/cpyext/test/; new-style classes tests
are in test_typeobject).  But that seems not useful.

What I'm asking for is any way for us to reproduce the problem.  It
can be step-by-step instructions about building PyCXX (like you
suggested); or it can be a smaller .c use case, which might help
to motivate us to look at it.  It doesn't have to be specially prepared
or integrated with the cpyext tests---we first need to figure out what
the real problem is, before we can write a relevant unit test.

A bientôt,
