Seg Fault while using Python3.7.0

Bug Description

When iterating over elements in a largeish xml file parsed using the objectify API, the code linked to below produces a seg fault in Python 3.7.0.
However, it runs fine using 3.6.6 and in both 3.7.0 and 3.6.6 using the lxml.etree API.

See the code at to reproduce.

I ran the tests with tox and pytest in a Virtualenv.

Python : sys.version_info(major=3, minor=7, micro=0, releaselevel='final', serial=0)
lxml.etree : (4, 2, 5, 0)
libxml used : (2, 9, 8)
libxml compiled : (2, 9, 8)
libxslt used : (1, 1, 32)
libxslt compiled : (1, 1, 32)

Thanks for the report and the test code. I can reproduce it in Py3.7.0 and get a crash deeply inside of CPython's memory allocator. I cannot reproduce it in the latest CPython 3.7 release branch build, so I guess it's a bug on their side that was recently fixed. Py3.7.1 is scheduled for early next week, so I'll just close this bug (not in lxml) and suggest you wait for the first 3.7 maintenance release.

Changed in lxml:
status: New → Invalid
