I was reading source code for bltinmodule.c and found probably erroneus stuff in filter function. I'm newbie to python inners and don't know if attached code is worth for a patch submission.
I would appreciate if someone could take a look at it and if it's ok then i'll make submission, otherwise just drop it.
As was already said, thanks for your contribution!
I noticed in your patch that you also did "whitespace normalization" of the file before diffing it. This is generally not a good idea -- it distracts the reader of the patch from the actual bug the patch is fixing. In your case, 4 out of 6 patch chunks were spurious.
We do like to keep our whitespace normalized, but as a rule we only do this in patches that don't make otherwise significant changes, so that the semantic changes are separate from the cleanups.
That's a minor nit, however -- thanks for finding the memory leak!
