Yep, this definitely looks like an issue - could you open a bug? We should probably have a check when adding which causes us to scan the list occasionally and remove any dead types.

Subject: [IronPython] Possible WeakReference leak in Ipy 2.6.1
When definnning classes in a method that are subcallses, like:
class A(BaseType): pass
The new generated types is appended to the _subtypes weak reference list on BaseType.
Looks like this list is only cleaned when RemoveSubType Is called, which might never happen if I understand correctly.
Seems to me there should be a cleanup mechanism similar to WeakDictionary, so the list can't grow to infinity.
