I think the blog writer was bitten by <http://bugs.debian.org/468993>.
In Python 2.5, PyMem_DEL and PyObject_Del are no longer interchangeable;
memory allocated by PyMem_NEW needs to be deallocated by PyMem_DEL, and
likewise for PyObject_New and PyObject_Del.
A similar (automated) report was filed for python-ldap, and I've
verified that it doesn't apply -- <http://bugs.debian.org/468995>.
