Program described in msg189250 does not crash on the master branch of Python. The PEP 587 deeply reworked Python initialization code. There is now a preinitialization phase, for example.

Moreover, Programs/_testembed.c has a test calling Py_Initialize()+Py_Finalize() multiple times, and this test calls Py_SetProgramName() as well.

Upgrade to Python 3.8 to get the fix. (I didn't check if Python 3.7 is also fixed.)
