pybind11 ( dev here.

We're seeing massive memory increases due to this bug, which completely break our test suite (and likely any use of this library, which is commonly used to bind C++ code to Python).

Please look at the following issue ticket:

where RSS goes to 43MB to 4.3GB for the basic set of tests. The fancy fancy test suite which also covers NumPy/SciPy can't even be run anymore. All issues disappear when the dict patch listed here is applied.

We're really concerned that this is not slated to be fixed for 3.6.0. Pybind11 is not doing anything particularly special with dicts -- if this is hitting us, others will likely have issues as well.
