Fixing 3.3 is more likely that 3.4. I can view RuntimeError as a bug less obnoxious than  crash, but others may differ. Ultimately, the release managers can decide. This is definitely appropriate for 3.4, so please add tests. If the patch is for 2.7, please do one for 3.3 or 3.4.

For 3.x, d.keys() is not an issue, but d.values() is.

>>> d = {}
>>> d[1] = d.keys()
>>> d
{1: dict_keys([1])}
>>> d[2] = d.values()
>>> d
Traceback (most recent call last):
