Description:
Python 3.6.5, using a cherry py web server front end, and MySQL 5.7 backend.  With 8.0.11 after a few minutes of heavy load the process segfaults:

kernel: [154772.269554] python3[22456]: segfault at 1e8 ip 00007fcdd6887f47 sp 00007fcd8afbfd60 error 4 in libssl.so.1.0.0[7fcdd6860000+65000]

The interesting thing is that I am not using SSL to the database (nor HTTPS to the web server).  SSL should not be in play anywhere.

Revert to 2.1.16 and it works fine.

How to repeat:
The SQL being used is a very simple select.  Nothing odd, other than the cursor's connection, which is weakly referenced, apparently gets GC'd every so often, but that's a different issue.

If I restart the server after it dies, it'll handle a few dozen requests and then segfault again.

Suggested fix:
For now, reverting back to 2.1.16, although that is not officially supported on Python 3.6, but at least it does not segfault.
