About automation, regrtest -R checks memory leaks using sys.getallocatedblocks(). But this function only tracks PyMem_Malloc() and PyObject_Malloc() (which is now technically the same memory allocator, since Python 3.6: )

I tried to track PyMem_RawMalloc() using regrtest but... the raw memory allocator is not really "deterministic", it's hard to get reliable behavior. See: bpo-26850.

Tracking memory leaks is an hard topic :-) I'm happy that I finally fixed tracemalloc to track properly objects in free lists: bpo-35053!
