Honestly this seems like a bug in 3.8 to me (if it indeed behaves like this):

>>> (*x), y
(1, 2, 3)

Every time I mistakenly tried (*x) I really meant (*x,), so it's surprising that (*x), y would be interpreted as (*x, y) rather than flagging (*x) as an error.

Please don't "fix" this even if it is a regression.
