I have run the test1 code again, this time on my laptop PC (no MAC-user,
sorry) using the last stable numpy release. The memory problem does
_not_ show up now.  I'm running with:
 - Ubuntu Feisty (kernel 2.6.17-12-generic i686)
 - python 2.5.1 (Feisty package)
 - numpy 1.0.4 (compiled with gcc version 4.1.2)

However, the memory leak appears on my laptop if I use python 2.5.1 with
numpy 1.0.1. At least here, this seems to be an issue dependent only on
the numpy version, and a solved one.
