I thought I had already answered that report, but I couldn't find the 
question I had in mind. Apologies if it is duplicated.

The test that started to fail with this commit does a substr() on an 
unicode string that has get and len magic callbacks. Before the change 
len magic was called, now it isn't anymore. Is this is the expected 
behaviour after this change? I have no idea whatsoever on what is 
supposed to be correct, but I'd like to double check so that nothing bad 
goes unnoticed.
