Checked in the tests as
cpyext/test/test_typeobject.py:test_tp_new_in_subclass_of_type.  The issue is
that PyType_Type.tp_new just calls slot_tp_new, which calls again
space.getattr(w_type, space.wrap("__new__")), leading to infinite recursion.

Unsure how much there is really to fix.  It seems to me that *any* slot has the
same problem.  But then probably not, otherwise this issue would have shown up
much earlier...
