seen with 2.7.3 rc2

File descriptors opened by PyFile_FromString don't get closed when the
reference count is decreased.

Here's my test program, pythony.c:

#include <Python.h>

int main()
{
  int i = 0;
  PyObject *obj;

  Py_Initialize();
  while (i++ < 5) {
    obj = PyFile_FromString("hello.py", "r");
    assert(obj);
    Py_DECREF(obj);
  }
  Py_Finalize();
}

hello.py is 'print("hello world")'.

I'm compiling it with both Python 2.6 and 2.7.
$ gcc pythony.c -lpython2.6 -L/usr/lib/python2.6/config -I/usr/include/python2.6/ -o pythony-2.6
$ gcc pythony.c -lpython2.7 -L/usr/lib/python2.7/config -I/usr/include/python2.7/ -o pythony-2.7

The Python 2.7 version never calls close, not even at Py_Finalize().

On #d-d, jwilk suspected that this change might be the cause:
