Anthony and I talked about this a bit.  The current behavior seems
less than optimal.  However, changing it in a bug fix release seems
particularly risky.

Raymond, can you revert the changes?  I looked in Objects/setobject.c
and saw 53667.  Is that the revision you are referring to?  Are there
any other revs?
