I would have commented on the tracker, if any issue number was 
corresponded to this commit. I was not sure there is real crash until 
trying to write a reproducer, the code just looked suspicious to me.

Another suspicious commit was changeset 637e197be547 [1]. Looks as 
Raymond missed my comment on Python-Dev [2]. I still have no reproducer 
for this particular possible crash, found example crashes also with 3.5 
[3], this can be a consequence of other change.
