Well, it's not a good idea to install yet another package that may
introduce more leaks or other problems.

Just import pdb and sent a breakpoint where/when you think memory has
"leaked" to the point that it's a problem,
then As Jason mentioned, poke around with the gc module or other tools

>> 3. Can I sort of "break" into the memory to see what objects consume how much memory?
