When a cycle object has fully consumed its input iterable, __reduce__ method uses the returns a space-inefficient result when space-efficient alternative is available.

# Current way of restoring a cycle object with excess info in setstate:
>>> c = cycle(iter('de'))
>>> c.__setstate__((['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e'], 1))
>>> ''.join(next(c) for i in range(20)) # next 20 values

# The same result can be achieved with less information: 
>>> c = cycle(iter('de'))
>>> c.__setstate__((['a', 'b', 'c'], 0))
>>> ''.join(next(c) for i in range(20)) # next 20 values
