PyObjC has an extension that's imported as "objc._objc". This works fine on version upto the 3.5 beta (checkout from earlier today).

With that I get the following exception:

Python 3.5.0b1+ (default:7255af1a1c50+, May 25 2015, 11:46:18) 
[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple LLVM 6.1.0 (clang-602.0.53)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import objc

The attached patch appears to fix the issue. This appears to be an off-by-one error.

Since this error was in the beta release, I used this issue reference in the NEWS file, rather than the original implementation issue.
