Shouldn't the file object eventually get garbage collected after the ZipFile is 
deleted? I ran into a similar problem in my own code where file descriptors were 
being leaked under pypy 1.8. Yes, I have now fixed the missing close on the file 
object, but I'm still surprised that files weren't eventually garbage collected 
and the file descriptors closed. Is this garbage collection behavior a bug, or 
am I misunderstanding something?
