I disabled the KEEPALIVE_SIZE_LIMIT, as you suggested, and that also
fixed the problem.  The comment describe the code is really unnerving:

/* Limit for the Unicode object free list stay alive optimization.


   Note: This is an experimental feature ! If you get core dumps when
   using Unicode objects, turn this feature off.


Why was this experimental feature released with Python if it causes core
