I have studied this some time ago. The xx module comes each time from a
different file (in a directory created with tempfile.mkdtemp).

Every instance of the module creates a new entry in the static
"extensions" dictionary in Python/import.c. This entry at least contains
a copy of the module dictionary, which explains the number of "leaked"
references.

I do not see any way to clear this dictionary. The proposed patch is
probably the best thing to do.
