[New-bugs-announce] [issue14172] ref-counting leak in buffer usage in Python/marshal.c

New submission from Stefan Behnel <scoder at users.sourceforge.net>:

Line 428 in Python/marshal.c calls pb->bf_releasebuffer() without dec-refing the view.obj field afterwards. I don't think this is really so truly performance critical that it can't accept the couple of nanoseconds that it takes to go through PyBuffer_Release() instead.
