This patch fixes the memory leak in split-dict resizing.

Each time dict_resize is called, it gets a new, larger size `> minused`. If this is triggered many times, it will keep growing in size by a factor of two each time, as the previous size is passed as minused for the next call.

Set the lower bound at minused (inclusive), rather than exclusive, so that the size does not continue to increase for repeated calls.

A test is added to test_dict.py based on the earlier test script, but if someone has a simpler way to trigger the split-dict resize events, I'd be happy to see it.
