The attached example works in the __add__ and __getattribute__ cases on
CPython, but fails in the __getattr__ case.  All three cases work as the
semantics say they should on Jython, IronPython and PyPy.  It's
admittedly an obscure use case. 

There is no reason that __getattr__ should behave differently.  The
behavior of __add__ and __getattribute__ is the "correct" one, according
to the rule that special methods are bound (with __get__) before they
are called.

It's the issue for python 3.0 too

Here is a patch for trunk and 2.5 version. It also contains a fix for
another crasher (see the tests). I only tested the 2.5 patch, because I
don't have the tools for the trunk installed.

Thanks for the patch! Fixed in r67246.

Here is another patch, for Python 2.4, which contains only the security
fix. Benjamin, will you also commit these backports?

Backported to 2.4 in r67250 and 2.5 in r67251.
