I just fixed some reference-count problems in f2py today.  These were of 
the variety that there was a missing decref that would cause the 
reference count of certain often-used data-types to increase without 
bound and eventually wrap (to 0) in long-running processes using f2py.

I suspect this is the fundamental problem in both cases.
