To Reproduce Try typing a small program. Probably triggerable by any use of macOS and AREPL when typing a variable name that does not exist yet.

What about

from sys import version
import asyncio


I managed to get this working by changing

from asyncio.set_event_loop(asyncio.new_event_loop())

to asyncio.set_event_loop(asyncio.get_event_loop())

My environment: MacOS 11.2.3 (Big Sur) Python 3.9.3

Finally got access to a Mac. I can reproduce the bug on 3.9, but the bug does not occur on 3.10. I suggest either using the fix workaround above, downgrading to 3.7, or upgrading to 3.10.

The other interesting thing is that for me this only occurs in the third arepl run.
