This program behaves differently when run under the profiler (either profile or cProfile) versus when run normally.

```
from __future__ import annotations  # ***
import dataclasses

@dataclasses.dataclass
class C:
    x: dataclasses.InitVar[int]

    def __post_init__(self, x):
        print(f'hello {x}')

C(0)
```

Save this as foo.py. Then

    python foo.py

prints

    hello 0

but

    python -m profile foo.py

results in the traceback

```

TypeError: __post_init__() missing 1 required positional argument: 'x'
```

A similar traceback occurs if using `-m cProfile` instead of `-m profile`.

No such traceback occurs if the `from future import __annotations__` is removed from the file.

Possibly related to #39442.
