Circular references not being cleaned up by Py_Finalize()

I've been trying to get garbage collection of circular references to
work properly with no success then I noticed the documentation stating
that it just doesn't:
>From documentation on Py_Finalize() -> "Memory tied up in circular
references between objects is not freed. "
I copy pasted the Noddy example for circular reference breaking from
the documentation and set a break point in its Noddy_dealloc function
and sure enough even that simple example doesn't work properly.
So what's the deal here? :) I want all objects to be freed when I
shut down and their destruction functions to be properly called. Is
there really no way to make this happen?
Many thanks for any insights,
