Summary: weakref callbacks and gc corrupt memory

Initial Comment:
This program crashes the Python interpreter in a debug
build, and probably corrupts memory in release build
(on Windows, at least):

"""
import weakref
import gc

_boundMethods = weakref.WeakKeyDictionary()

def safeRef(object):
    selfkey = object.im_self
    funckey = object.im_func
    _boundMethods[selfkey] = weakref.WeakKeyDictionary()
    _boundMethods[selfkey][funckey] =
BoundMethodWeakref(object)

class BoundMethodWeakref:
    def __init__(self, boundMethod):
        def remove(object):
            gc.collect()
        self.weakSelf =
weakref.ref(boundMethod.im_self, remove)

class X(object):
    def test(self):
        pass

def test():
    print "A"
    safeRef(X().test)
    print "B"

if __name__ == "__main__":
    test()
"""
