You don't need something like a buggy SWIG to put non-strings in dir().

>>> class C: pass
>>> C.__dict__[3] = "bad wolf"
>>> dir(C)
[3, '__doc__', '__module__']

This is likely to happen "legitimately", for instance in a class that allows
x.y and x['y'] to mean the same thing. (if the user assigns to x[3])
