What exactly is "it"?  The failure when running regrtest.py in whole; the
failure Neil reported (and I assume on Linux) by running just test_descr and
test_gc after *disabling* gc in regrtest.py ("disable" == gc.disable() or
gc.set_threshold(0), not gc.set_treshold(1)); or the 3 gc.collect()s it
takes to clear out the cycles in the self-contained test program I posted?

Probably a good idea regardless <wink>.
