Looked at it and couldn't see what could be wrong.   Need code to 
reproduce the problem.

Yes it has.  Fixed.

Not sure about that.  It worked for me using ctypes 1.0.0.

I'm not too concerned about this.  Whether we release the memory right 
before exiting or just let the O.S. do it when the process quits seems 
rather immaterial.  It would be a bit of work to implement so the cost / 
benefit ratio seems way to high.

Pearu told me not to hold up NumPy 1.0 because f2py g3 is still a ways 
away.  His changes should not impact normal usage of f2py.   I suspect 
NumPy 1.0.1 will contain f2py g3
