memory leaks in 1.5.2 Python interpreter

We have observed memory leaks in the 1.5.2 Python interpreter under
Purify.

If we check for new leaks immediately before and immediately after
invoking PyEval_CallObject, we often see a leak originating in
PyTuple_New as invoked by eval_code2.

Can anyone tell me whether or not later versions of Python have
addressed any memory management problems? We would like to know if
moving to a newer version will clear up any memory leaks.

Thanks for your help.
