The -R option of regrtest replaces sys.stdout with a io.StringIO object. Problem: the refleak are hunted after stdout is replaced, and so each print() increaes the total reference counter which is seen as a leak.

Example:

$ cat Lib/test/test_noop.py 
"noop"

$ ./python -u -m test -R 3:3 -W test_noop 
Run tests sequentially
0:00:00 [1/1] test_noop
