Comment (by oliphant):

 I think the hypothesis is correct.  This definitely looks like a stack-
 overflow.  I am hesitant to walk self-base pointers upwards as there may
 be situations where this creates other problems.

 There are other ways in Python to create stack over-flows like this, so
 I'm not sure a lot of effort should be spent on fixing this.
