I suspect that this is due to the struct module cache, which caches Struct instances corresponding to formats used.  If that's true, there's no real leak as such.

As a test, what happens if you increase your xrange(30) to xrange(300)?  (And perhaps decrease the size of the struct itself a bit to compensate).  You should see that memory usage stays constant after the first ~100 runs.

Using Struct directly is a good workaround if this is a problem.
