New submission from yanolab <kenji.yano at gmail.com>:

Pypy has a different GC specification to CPython.

quote from pypy-dev at ml:
The difference with CPython is that CPython destroys the object as soon as it 
forgets the last reference to the object (and thus it is deterministic), while 
on PyPy the objects are destroyed only the the GC runs (which is not 
deterministic).
