New submission from Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr>:

A couple of tests exhibit some memory leaks in the py3k branch (when
invoked with "-R 3:2").

test_asyncore leaked [-78, 0] references, sum=-78
test_fileio leaked [1, 1] references, sum=2
test_httpservers leaked [-210, 157] references, sum=-53
test_socket leaked [8, 210] references, sum=218
test_urllib2 leaked [227, 227] references, sum=454
test_urllib2_localnet leaked [5, 4] references, sum=9

I'm filing this as critical so that we keep track of it, but it doesn't
look severe in itself (ISTR we actually had more leaks in 3.0).
