Comment(by rgommers):

 Then it's probably a Python issue, see these links:

 http://pushingtheweb.com/2010/06/python-and-tcmalloc/

 http://hg.python.org/cpython/rev/f8a697bc3ca8 (so claim is that issue is
 fixed/improved for Python 3.3.)

 http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/numpy-discussion/2011-May/056427.html

 Not sure if rebuilding Python against tcmalloc is possible and worth it
 for you. If that does solve the issue, that would be good to know.
