This is what I get for leaving a response up and working on it intermittently for three hours, and not rechecking: I found the same basic problem.

For the record, I also found a terribly hacky way of doing this sort of rebinding manually, should you actually need to do so under the current design:

def make_class_closure(__class__):
    '''Makes a one-tuple closure with a cell for the provided class'''
    return (lambda: super).__closure__

class MyList(list):
    def insert(self, index, object):
        super().insert(index, object)

class MyList2(list):

MyList2.insert = types.FunctionType(MyList.insert.__code__, globals(), closure=make_class_closure(MyList2))

It would need further improvements to recognize when it needs to run, deal with existing closures, handle top-level functions without __class__ in their closure co_freevars, etc., and I won't even pretend that's a sane workaround for the problem, but it does demonstrate what is happening/what would need to be changed to make it work, if indeed that's desirable.
