Corrputed stacktrace?

Hello,

I'm trying to debug a problem. As far as I can tell, one of my methods
is called at a point where it really should not be called. When setting
a breakpoint in the function, I'm getting this:
/home/nikratio/in-progress/s3ql/src/s3ql/backends/s3c.py(693)close()
-> if not self.md5_checked:
(Pdb) bt
/usr/lib/python3.3/threading.py(878)_bootstrap()
-> self._bootstrap_inner()
/usr/lib/python3.3/threading.py(901)_bootstrap_inner()
-> self.run()
/usr/lib/python3.3/threading.py(858)run()
-> self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs)
/usr/lib/python3.3/socketserver.py(610)process_request_thread()
-> self.finish_request(request, client_address)
/usr/lib/python3.3/socketserver.py(345)finish_request()
-> self.RequestHandlerClass(request, client_address, self)
/usr/lib/python3.3/socketserver.py(666)__init__()
-> self.handle()
/home/nikratio/in-progress/s3ql/tests/mock_server.py(77)handle()
-> return super().handle()
/usr/lib/python3.3/http/server.py(402)handle()
-> self.handle_one_request()
/usr/lib/python3.3/http/server.py(388)handle_one_request()
-> method()
/home/nikratio/in-progress/s3ql/tests/mock_server.py(169)do_GET()
-> q = parse_url(self.path)
/home/nikratio/in-progress/s3ql/tests/mock_server.py(52)parse_url()
-> p.params = urllib.parse.parse_qs(q.query)
/usr/lib/python3.3/urllib/parse.py(553)parse_qs()
-> encoding=encoding, errors=errors)
/usr/lib/python3.3/urllib/parse.py(585)parse_qsl()
-> pairs = [s2 for s1 in qs.split('&') for s2 in s1.split(';')]
/usr/lib/python3.3/urllib/parse.py(585)<listcomp>()
-> pairs = [s2 for s1 in qs.split('&') for s2 in s1.split(';')]
/home/nikratio/in-progress/s3ql/src/s3ql/backends/common.py(853)close()
-> self.fh.close()
/home/nikratio/in-progress/s3ql/src/s3ql/backends/s3c.py(693)close()
-> if not self.md5_checked:


To me this does not make any sense.

Firstly, the thread that is (apparently) calling close should never ever
reach code in common.py. This thread is executing a socketserver handler
that is entirely contained in mock_server.py and only communicates with
the rest of the program via tcp.

Secondly, the backtrace does not make sense. How can evaluation of

pairs = [s2 for s1 in qs.split('&') for s2 in s1.split(';')]

in urllib/parse.py() result in a method call in backends/common.py?
There is no trickery going on, qs is a regular string:

(Pdb) up
(Pdb) up
(Pdb) up
(Pdb) l
580 into Unicode characters, as accepted by the bytes.decode() method.
581
582 Returns a list, as G-d intended.
583 """
584 qs, _coerce_result = _coerce_args(qs)
585 -> pairs = [s2 for s1 in qs.split('&') for s2 in s1.split(';')]
586 r = []
587 for name_value in pairs:
588 if not name_value and not strict_parsing:
589 continue
590 nv = name_value.split('=', 1)
(Pdb) whatis qs
<class 'str'>
(Pdb) p qs
''
(Pdb)

I have also tried to get a backtrace with the faulthandler module, but
it gives the same result:

File "/usr/lib/python3.3/threading.py", line 901 in _bootstrap_inner

Is it possible that the stack got somehow corrupted?

Does anyone have a suggestion how I could go about debugging this?

I am using Python 3.3.

Best,
-Nikolaus
