Sorry about that, I had hoped to be able to use the build-bot to
test/diagnose the issues, but it's down and I didn't pursue it further.

 Sure, taking a look.

This looks like it's a problem in new_iterator_pywrap.c, in
PySequenceMethods npyiter_as_sequence.  I got this error when trying to
slice before implementing the slot sq_slice.  I copied the definition from
array_as_sequence, which I thought would already have any adjustments for
Py3.  The value in that slot shouldn't be NULL, though, so I don't know why
it's giving the error, maybe the struct definition changed, and somehow in
the array sequence methods that gets masked?  Or maybe the assignment slice
slot needs to be filled as well, but that doesn't seem right to me.

I see, in Py3 oct and hex call array_index instead of array_oct and
array_hex.  I think changing the self-reference exceptions in
int/long/float/oct/hex to TypeError instead of ValueError is probably a good
way to make this consistent.
