Attached is a minimal example.  It has a function called leak().  The end of the script calls that function, runs the garbage collector, and prints out the number of objects in the system.  In Python 2.6, the number of objects increases after each iteration of the loop.  In Python 3.1, the number of objects remains fixed after the second iteration.  I don't have a Python 2.7 branch handy to test.

The problem could lie in the C code or perhaps ABCMeta is keeping a reference?  I'm not sure.
