I agree that current behaviour is a bit confusing; also, the implication is that deleting from the dictionary while you have an iterator may leave some hanging references around the place, which raises a red flag in my mind (maybe something else might find the stale data, too).

My inclination would be to Armin's idea of setting next to None. Seems simpler than trying too hard to patch around something that's a bad idea anyway.
