Antoine give me a hint. The problem seems related to using PyDict_GetItem() when look up an attribute in the instance dict. It silences all exceptions (including RecursionError) and this results in silent "no such key in a dict".

But since 3.8 it was replaced with PyDict_GetItemWithError() which preserves RecursionError (see issue35459). I think we can remove Py_ALLOW_RECURSION/Py_END_ALLOW_RECURSION now.

As for other case in interning string, Py_ALLOW_RECURSION/Py_END_ALLOW_RECURSION was used to guard PyDict_GetItem(). But the current code uses PyDict_SetDefault() (added in 3.4) which does not silence errors. So Py_ALLOW_RECURSION/Py_END_ALLOW_RECURSION can be removed in that place too.
