After issue35941 (any PR merged)

In https-access, memory usage increases by about 200KB per urlopen()
and easily reach to giga bytes.

I found out leak of certificate-store-handles in _ssl.c and made patch,
which works fine for my pc.

I guess some users are in trouble with this leak.
I'm about to raise PR, so please review. Thanks!

I raised another PR(15632), which keeps the changes to a minimum.
I hope either PR would be in the 3.7.5 / 3.8.0 official.

Thanks for the simpler patch. I'm happier taking that one, given we know the rest of the code already works.

Closing now, as we're just waiting on the backports to clear CI.

Thanks for your contributions!
