At present, str.join contains a shortcut that returns a
reference to the existing string for a sequence that
contains a single item.

This can cause misbehaviour when subclasses of str are
involved (see the bug report for details).

The attached patch removes the shortcut, and adds a
test for the correct behaviour.
