Various __init__() methods don't decref (if needed) before assigning to fields
of the object's struct (i.e. assigning to `self->some_field`):
- _asyncio_Task___init___impl() (in Modules/_asynciomodule.c)
- _lzma_LZMADecompressor___init___impl() (in Modules/_lzmamodule.c)
- _bz2_BZ2Decompressor___init___impl() (in Modules/_bz2module.c)
- EVP_tp_init() (in Modules/_hashopenssl.c)
- property_init_impl() (in Objects/descrobject.c)
- cm_init() (in Objects/funcobject.c)
- sm_init() (in Objects/funcobject.c)

For example, _asyncio_Task___init___impl() does `self->task_coro = coro;`
instead of `Py_XSETREF(self->task_coro, coro);`.
Thus, the following code would result in at least one refleak:
import _asyncio
task = _asyncio.Task('foo')

I would open a PR to fix this soon.

You approved this PR pending some test cases.  Would you have the chance to take another look?


Oren, it looks like you'll need to rebase before this could be merged.

It seems like the lzma fix is incomplete: bpo-33916, "test_lzma: test_refleaks_in_decompressor___init__() leaks 100 handles on Windows".
