Following this document to compile the python I've got a memory leak on the test _testCongestion. This test is on the file Lib/test/

The line that show me the issue is:

while True:
    self.cli.sendto(, 0, (HOST, self.port))

The process enters on the "while" and never finish. I'm using a Fedora 28 on this test.

That issue has more information/discussion, and it does look like the same bug, so I'll close this one.

Thank you for reporting it!
