Converting a list of Extension Types that implement __len__ and __getitem__ into a numpy array takes infinite #3243

Having an Extension Type that implements __len__ and __getitem__ like this:

cdef class Foo:

    def __len__(self):

    def __getitem__(self, key):
        print(f"Calling __getitem__ with key {key}")

If I try to create a numpy array from a list of instances of this Extension Type, it gets stuck calling __getitem__ forever:

> np.asarray([Foo(), Foo()])

Calling __getitem__ with key 0
Calling __getitem__ with key 1
Calling __getitem__ with key 2
Calling __getitem__ with key 3
Calling __getitem__ with key 4
Calling __getitem__ with key 5

It only happens when the two methods are together. This behaviour doesn't appear using regular Python.

I am using Python 3.7.3, cython 0.29.12
