2.2: __call__ method via __getattr__ not working

I don't know if this is a known bug in the current CVS version of 2.2
but the following code breaks.

class bar(object):
    def __call__(self, args):
        print args

b = bar()
b(1) #works ok here

class foo(object):
    def _call_(self, args):
        print args
    def __getattr__(self, attr):
        if attr == '__call__':
            return self._call_
        raise AttributeError, attr

f = foo()
f(1) #dies here

It gives the following traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "tt.py", line 17, in ?
    f(1)
TypeError: object is not callable: <foo object at 0x8148208>


Thanks, 
Drew
