FAIL: test_new_curses_panel (test.test_curses.TestCurses)
Traceback (most recent call last):

AssertionError: TypeError not raised by panel


The regression was introduced in 1baf030a902392fe92d934ed0fb6a385cf7d8869 (issue1635741). It can lead to crash because creation of non-initialized object is allowed now. See issue23815 for details.

I can reproduce the issue with the command:

./python -m test -u all test_curses

I wrote PR 23948 to fix the regression.

Note: "./python -m test test_curses" doesn't fail since the test is skipped.
