I don't believe this is a bug.

You've discovered a nasty corner-case, but I think it's expected behaviour.  There is a PEP open to make this behaviour a bit nicer:

The fact that older Python 3.5/6 versions don't get the infinite loop could be considered a bug, but this was fixed a while ago (bpo-25612), and it seems unlikely that this fix would be back-ported.
