If this is a memory leak, in the technical sense of the word, I don't
see what we can do about it from the blender side.  A leak means
the memory is no longer accessible from the program.  Said another
way, nobody has a pointer or handle to the leaked memory.  This means
there is no way to delete it.

This is a different situation from the garbage collector holding on
to the memory.

I would like to hear more about the problem.
