If the "name" argument to "" is not a string, the reference count for the "string" argument is not decremented.

In the file "Modules/_hashopenssl.c", function "EVP_new()", a call to "PyBuffer_Release()" is missing:

  if (!PyArg_Parse(name_obj, "s", &name)) {
+     PyBuffer_Release(&view);
      PyErr_SetString(PyExc_TypeError, "name must be a string");
      return NULL;

The change is against the 2.7 branch. The 3.2 branch is not affected.

Could you possibly provide a testcase?.

Here is a test, which fails when I run regrtest with leak detection:
    ./python -m test.regrtest -R:: test_hashlib
