> I recently posted about a memory leak in numpy and failed to mention the
> version. The leak manifests itself in numpy-1.0.3.1 but is not present in
> numpy-1.0.2
>
> The following code reproduces the bug:
>
> import numpy as np
>
> a = np.array([1.0, 2.0, 3.0])
> while True:
>     b = str(a)
>
> What happens above is that is repeatedly converted to a string. The
> process size grow quite rapidly.
>
> Has anyone else come across this? Where do I look to try to correct it?

> Thanks
