[New-bugs-announce] [issue23769] valgrind reports leaks for test_zipimport

New submission from Robert Kuska:

Leaks happen only when both testDoctestFile and testDoctestSuite are run.
Run with Python 3.4.2 and 3.4.1 with same result.

I have extracted those two tests into `leak.py` (attached).

Note that when I remove support.modules_cleanup(*modules_before) from leak.py valgrind reports no leaks (in original test_zipimport those are run in setUp and tearDown).

Output of  
valgrind --suppressions=/home/rkuska/upstream/cpython/Misc/valgrind-python.supp --leak-check=yes -v python3 leak.py
attached as `report`.
