After speaking with Jan, I have now committed the second patch above
in r1636289.

(We think that the refcnt change alone should fix your crash, but it
doesn't hurt to have the extra safety net of the early return if the
interp is already unselected, although that shouldn't happen now.)

Many thanks for your work on this.
