Can you reproduce this with a script that does nothing more

while True:
  myDate = datetime.datetime(*(time.strptime("2008-12-10T14:00:03",

I tried with both Python 2.4.5 on Solaris and Python built from
CVS (aka 2.7a0) on my Mac and see no memory growth of the
processes.  If there's a memory leak my guess is that it is
somewhere else.
