I tried the gc.collect(). It aint helping. The reference count still
keeps growing till 5 after it which it drops. As you said, it is not
gonna hurt right away.

The only downside in that mysterious up and down thingie is that , we
could get to a wrong conclusion about a leak, if we ran the algo for
say 3 times. Right ?

Thanks Heiko for all the help. And in case, you get to decode the
mystery behind the increase before the decrease ..kindly let me know.
