I've done some experimentation. Yes, the updated test passes when the clear_frames call is removed in cPython 3.5

But the original test also passes when clear_frames is not called if one drops into pdb and steps through, which still fits the symptoms of having a loop.

The problem is then, that gc-only interpreters make no guarantees about lifetime of objects and this test needs a guarantee. As such I think conditional skipping is probably best.
