The fix for issue1473 was incomplete.
Fixed with changeset ff06e504ab9c, thanks for the report!

Note that _fields_ are handled a bit differently than CPython:
- with CPython, _fields_ is inherited from the base class.
- PyPy considers that a subclass without _fields_ is equivalent to a class with 
_fields_=[], so it sets this _fields_=[] as a default value.

The resulting classes should behave the same, of course.
