I don't think it is a bug.

The posted code completely breaks the expected behavior of __getattribute__. With a such implementation, there is nothing we can do with this object as we cannot introspect it.

Use the following if you really need this kind of behaviour:

class E(dict):
    def __getattribute__(self,name):
        try:
            return self[name]
        except KeyError:
            return dict.__getattribute__(self, name)
