A TestSuite (which is how tests are collected to run) holds all the tests and therefore keeps them all alive for the duration of the test run. (I presume this is the issue anyway.)

How would you solve this - by having calling a TestSuite (which is how a test run is executed) remove members from themselves after each test execution? (Any failure tracebacks etc stored by the TestResult would also have to not keep the test alive.)

My only concern would be backwards compatibility due to the change in behaviour.
