Memory leak spotted by the issue #28195: path_converter() calls PyUnicode_AsWideCharString() which allocates a new buffer at each call, but this buffer is never released.

On Python 3.5, PyUnicode_AsWideCharString() was used which handles internally the memory buffer and so release the memory later.

Attached patch fixes the regression introduced in Python 3.6 beta 1 by the change e20c7d8a8187 ("Issue #27781: Change file system encoding on Windows to UTF-8 (PEP 529)").
