The infinite loop may occur if one of the functions called by PyRun_InteractiveOneObject() returns persistently -1. This may be the case when there is no more memory and is handled by issue 30696.

It is not possible anymore to reproduce the infinite loop reported in the initial post. See how the 'enc' parameter of PyParser_ASTFromFileObject() is NULL in the following gdb session:

$ gdb -q python -q
