Error in python 3.6

File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/", line 737, in __init__
    self._context.verify_mode = cert_reqs
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/", line 479, in verify_mode
    super(SSLContext, SSLContext).verify_mode.__set__(self, value)
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/", line 479, in verify_mode
    super(SSLContext, SSLContext).verify_mode.__set__(self, value)

Crash is infinite recursion on super calls having to do with the verify_mode property

Crash found when creating an SSL context for eventlet with flask-socketio, unfortunately easiest way to reproduce involves installing eventlet, flask, flask-socketio, and pyopenssl. I've included the smallest working example of the crash in python 3.6, attached code works in python 3.5.

I'm attempting to create a dependency-free version of the file which exhibits the same behavior, it's tricky to unwrap all the libraries leading to the issue. See for original post discovering bug.

Recursion crash disappears in eventlet 0.17.4

Attached a simpler version of the code with same error using only eventlet.

It's a bug in eventlet's monkey patch, not a bug in Python's ssl module. I've seen a similar issue with gevent's monkey patch.
