[New-bugs-announce] [issue3104] overzealous garbage collector (dict)

GreaseMonkey report at bugs.python.org

New submission from GreaseMonkey <thematrixeatsyou at yahoo.co.nz>:

When filled with a massive database (>16MB, i'm not sure how large it's
meant to be), the dict object appears to mysteriously drop objects off
the face of the earth (in this case list objects). Wouldn't it be more
appropriate to splurt out a memory error rather than fail silently only
to screw up in another way?
