The issue is decribed by the following example:

sage: from mpmath import mpc
sage: hash(mpc(1, -1))
OverflowError                             Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-2-ff647837f542> in <module>
----> 1 hash(mpc(Integer(1), -Integer(1)))

~/devel/sage/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/sage/libs/mpmath/ext_main.pyx in sage.libs.mpmath.ext_main.mpc.__hash__ (build/cythonized/sage/libs/mpmath/ext_main.c:27881)()
   2496             True
   2497         """
-> 2498         return libmp.mpc_hash(self._mpc_)
   2500     def __neg__(s):

OverflowError: Python int too large to convert to C ssize_t

Its seems that __hash__ cannot return a Python3 int which is not an int in Python2. Therefore, my solution is to take the hash of the result of libmp.mpc_hash.

Can someone who knows something about hash functions comment on the quality of the resulting hash function? We don't want too many collisions....

All it is doing is using Python's hashing of a long int into a ssize_t sized int, which has to be a good hash function (at least, I highly doubt we could do better than the Python developers for this).
