I think that the problem exists also in python 3.5.1

After calling Py_Finalize and Py_Initialize I get the message "attribute of type 'NoneType' is not callable" on the datetime.strptime method.

from datetime import datetime
s = '20160505 160000'
refdatim = datetime.strptime(s, '%Y%m%d %H%M%S')

The first call works find but it crashes after the re initialization.

from datetime import datetime
s = '20160505 160000'
    refdatim = datetime.strptime(s, '%Y%m%d %H%M%S')
except TypeError:
    import time
    refdatim = datetime.fromtimestamp(time.mktime(time.strptime(s, '%Y%m%d %H%M%S')))

Can anyone confirm this bug? Can you tell me if this will be fixed for python 3.5/3.6/...?

All the other modules are working find after the re initialization but datetime.strptime.
