Antonio Cuni <anto.cuni at gmail.com> added the comment:

The finally is printed when the generator object is garbage collected.
Since CPython has reference counting, the generator is collected immediately,
while on PyPy is not.

If you add "import gc; gc.collect()" at the end of the script, the "finally" is
printed also on Pypy

status: unread -> wontfix
