While the test has been fixed, IMHO we need to better document this subtle behavior change since it can be surprising.

The test failed because PyObject_GetAttr() no longer ignores exceptions when getting the attribute from the type dictionary. It's a significant change compared to Python 3.7.

Right now, the change has not even a NEWS entry, whereas it's a backward incompatible change!

Don't get my wrong: the change is correct, we don't want to ignore arbitrary exceptions, it's just a matter of documentation.
