This is an assumed difference with CPython; PyPy does not use reference counting to manage
See this paragraph about PyPy's garbage collector:
"""... It also means that weak references may stay alive for a bit longer than expected."""
You could add a call to gc.collect() to clear weak references, but of course this has a
large performance impact.
