[New-bugs-announce] [issue2784] fast builtin sum may leak

Jean Brouwers report at bugs.python.org
Wed May 7 21:45:39 CEST 2008

New submission from Jean Brouwers <MrJean1 at Gmail.com>:

The new, fast builtin sum implementation may cause a memory leak in the 
float loop.  Both lines

    PyFPE_START_PROTECT("add", return 0)

should be changed to

    PyFPE_START_PROTECT("add", Py_DECREF(item); Py_DECREF(iter); return 

The attached file bltinmodule1.c.diff contain a patch to that extent.
