It isn't clear that there is actually anything to fix. Reporting memory
errors isn't easy, and most tools I have used in the past are erroneous.
For example, I once used a memory leak checker with MSVC that generated
its table even before global objects of my application had been
destroyed. It obviously generated wrong results, and thus was of little use.

I'm not sure whether you can assist your leak detector by forcing a gc
cleanup in python.
