test_pkg leaked [10, 10, 10] references
This one at least appears to be caused by dummy (deleted) entries in the dictionary of interned strings. So it is not really a leak.
It's actually because somewhere in the bowels of compilation, the file name being compiled gets interned and test_pkg writes out some temporary files and imports them. If this doesn't happen on the trunk, did this feature get lost somewhere?
It is a pain that it is so hard to figure this out, though. Wouldn't it make sense to find a trick to exclude these dummy entries from the total reference count? E.g. by subtracting the refcount of the dummy object...
Something like that would be nice, yes...
