>> But why is this so different from the C implementation of lru_cache?

> I don't know.  Maybe C version of lru cache creates a bit less pressure on GC.

Actually test/ now cleans up typing's lru cache & calls "gc.collect()". It seems that the typing cycles aren't collectable by the GC when Python lru cache is used.
