super() within generation function not properly parsed #3246

I can import teapot in the interactive python:
class _A():
def init(self):
self.a = 1
def _gen(c,AB):
class ABC(AB):
def init(self):
self.c = c
return ABC
_AC = _gen(3,_A)

But after I cythonize -X language_level=3 -i, and start a python interactive session, and import teapot, the interactive session quits directly. After I changed from super() to super(ABC, self), it works.

Name Version Build Channel

cython 0.29.10 py37h6538335_0 conda-forge

Code reproduced with correct formatting and simplified slightly:
class _A():
    def __init__(self):
        self.a = 1
def gen():
    class ABC(_A):
        def __init__(self):
    return ABC

ABC = gen()
print(ABC, ABC())

This generates a segmentation fault. The issue seems to be in the C function __pyx_pf_6teapot_gen. Just reproducing a chunk near the end:

  if (__Pyx_CyFunction_InitClassCell(__pyx_t_4, __pyx_t_5) < 0) __PYX_ERR(0, 7, __pyx_L1_error)
  __Pyx_DECREF(__pyx_t_4); __pyx_t_4 = 0;
  __pyx_v_ABC = __pyx_t_5;
  __pyx_t_5 = 0;
  __Pyx_DECREF(__pyx_t_3); __pyx_t_3 = 0;
  __Pyx_DECREF(__pyx_t_1); __pyx_t_1 = 0;
  __Pyx_DECREF(__pyx_t_2); __pyx_t_2 = 0;

  /* "":10
 *         def __init__(self):
 *             super().__init__()
 *     return ABC             # <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  __pyx_r = __pyx_v_ABC;
  __Pyx_DECREF(__pyx_t_4); __pyx_t_4 = 0;
  goto __pyx_L0;

Note that __Pyx_DECREF(__pyx_t_4); __pyx_t_4 = 0; is included twice and the second one is where it goes wrong. With super(ABC, self) this doesn't happen - however the function is quite different and a scope is generated, so I don't know if comparisons are useful.

I'm not sure I can make any more progress, but this is the start of the diagnosis.
