Embedding Python in an MFC application

I know that the first response to this will be "Why are you embedding
when you could just extend?" but please believe that I have my reasons
and for now this is what I have to do. However I am something of a
newbie with this stuff so bear with me.
Now for the question: I have created a simple MFC application (with
AppWizzard) which mearly calls Py_Initialize() and Py_Finalize() in the
OnInit function. When I build and run this app it starts the python
interpreter fine, and shuts it down without a noticable problem.
However when I close the application I get a huge memory leak. Now for
the wieird part. If I switch the above application from linking to MFC
as a shared dll, to statically linking to MFC the memory dump is gone.
Why is this? This is driving me nuts as I really need to use the MFC
as a shared dll.
Please tell me I am missing something simple. I am learning this stuff
as I go and this one has me stumped.
