seen with the current 2.7 branch:

$ cat >
def foo(): yield
gen = foo()
print gen.gi_frame.f_restricted
for i in gen: pass
print gen.gi_frame
gen = foo()
print gen.gi_frame.f_restricted

$ python

This is related to the fix for issue 14432. gen_send_ex sets f->f_tstate to NULL, so PyFrame_IsRestricted segfaults: 

    #define PyFrame_IsRestricted(f) \
        ((f)->f_builtins != (f)->f_tstate->interp->builtins)

Issue #14432: Generator now clears the borrowed reference to the thread state

This appears to be 2.7 only as 3.4.2 stops on the first print with AttributeError: 'frame' object has no attribute 'f_restricted', which is not a crash.

The fix for issue 14432 was applied to 3.3, but I'm pretty sure 2.x PyFrame_IsRestricted is the only problem. Nothing else should see f_tstate when it's NULL. Also, f_tstate was dropped from PyFrameObject in 3.4.
