I'm unable to reproduce the bug related to this patch. I keep the patch somewhere in my disk, and I will open a new issue if I'm able to reproduce it :-)
> you can use the -R option to regrtest to find out if there are any reference leaks (e.g. "-R 3:2:")
I tried all test*thread*py. test_threadsignals leaks a reference... even without my patch, so I opened a new issue: #7825.
Added file: http://bugs.python.org/file16074/thread_prealloc_pystate-4.patch
