Can anyone lend a hand here? Take a test, stick it in an infinite loop,
watch your process size blow off the roof, then whittle the test down until
the trigger becomes clear. We found a very serious 2.2 leak today doing
this to test_binop.py, and not even Guido (let alone God ...) knows how many
more may be lurking. It's not a Good Sign that test_binop has vanished from
the list now but everything else is still there.
