New description:

 See ticket 493 from scipy trac

 Dividing by zero (e.g. 1/scipy.float64(0.)) yields scipy.inf as it is
 supposed to, but leaks memory in the process.

 I'll attach a sample program where memory usage grows without bound.

 {{{
 #!python
 import scipy
 x = scipy.float64(0.)
 while 1:
     1/x
 }}}
