The following code recursively calls function test_forkserver(). However, the output is not expected RecursionError(recursively calling) or OSError(too many open files). An unexpected EOFError ( inside module multiprocessing, not this code itself) is reported. According to the error message, Python interpreter seems to behavior abnormal on line 1, "import multiprocessing". I try other cases in my machine, multiprocessing module can work well. Only this case will crash module multiprocessing.
import multiprocessing
import os

def do(i):
      print(test_forkserver(), os.getpid())

def test_forkserver():
      mp = multiprocessing.get_context('forkserver')
      mp.Pool(2).map(do(mp), range(3))
if __name__ == '__main__':

Attached output:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/python3.10/lib/python3.10/multiprocessing/", line 258, in main
    fds = reduction.recvfds(s, MAXFDS_TO_SEND + 1)
  File "/usr/local/python3.10/lib/python3.10/multiprocessing/", line 159, in recvfds
    raise EOFError
