It would be helpful if you could show what output you see, and how it differs from what you expect.
I think you're just seeing reference cycles or some other delayed garbage collection. If you put in a gc.collect() in your loops to force a collection, you'll see the reference numbers drop back.
There's no way we would deprecate globals and locals params to exec().
