When I have a normal syntax error in a file, Python reports the filename in the exception output:

$ cat syntax_error.py 
0x=5

$ python3.8 syntax_error.py 
  File "syntax_error.py", line 1
    0x=5
     ^
SyntaxError: invalid hexadecimal literal


But if the syntax error is inside an f-string, Python reports 'File "<fstring>"' instead of the actual filename in the exception output.

$ cat syntax_error_in_fstring.py 
f'This is a syntax error: {0x=5}'

$ python3.8 syntax_error_in_fstring.py 
  File "<fstring>", line 1
SyntaxError: invalid hexadecimal literal
