from emacs -Q, when opening file with ending ".txt" which contains

#! /usr/bin/env python3

python-mode is started. Is this correct? Understand the mode is ruled
by a files ending, not just by some contents.
That's a simplification.  The full story is described in the ELisp
manual, under set-auto-mode (node "Auto Major Mode").

How to open such a file in fundamental-mode?
"M-x fundamental-mode RET"?
Than Emacs hangs already, it's not accessible any more.

Or temporarily disable interpreter-mode-alist

When evaluating in scratch-buffer

(setq auto-mode-alist nil)

python-mode still appears.

Isn't it a bug? IMO files with ending ".txt" shouldn't be set in any programming language mode.
