Yes, there is. And I just realized a reference to it is being kept
deep in sys.modules without being cleaned up afterwards. Sorry 'bout
that. I'm looking into a fix, but my first attempt didn't work. I'll
need to code up a more careful test to ensure that not only I actually
fix it, but that we get it fixed for good.
Sorry for not having an immediate solution...
