"While embedding the Python interpreter in an application, I have encountered a crash when the built-in function 'super' is invoked with no arguments."

This is not supported. When super() is invoked with no arguments, the class is retrieved (indirectly) from the current frame. In your example, there is no current frame. You can workaround this limitation by passing explicitly the class to super.

The crash should be fixed: a RuntimeError is now raised.
