Although it is not a crasher, I don't think it was intentional because although openlog() is happy to accept NULL for indent, the error from  _PyUnicode_AsString() would have to be cleared if the intent was to ignore undecodable indent.

Some notes:

* Rather than just patching in error handling code, please consider
removing use of those APIs and replace their calls with something
more appropriate, e.g. using a parser API.

* When ignoring errors from the API, you have to clear the exception.
This is missing in a couple of places in the patch, e.g. in pyexpat.c

* Please also remove hacks like these:

+#define CMP PyUnicode_CompareWithASCIIString
+        if (CMP(nameobj, "entity") == 0)
+            res = self->entity;
+        else if (CMP(nameobj, "target") == 0)
+            res = self->target;
+        else if (CMP(nameobj, "version") == 0) {
+            return PyUnicode_FromFormat(
+                "Expat %d.%d.%d", XML_MAJOR_VERSION,
