Comment (by oliphant):

 I don't have much time to look at this, right now, but the reference
 counting going on was carefully implemented several times previously.
 There may still be a problem, but I don't think it is as simple as getting
 rid of a DECREF.   All of the loops (casting and the function call itself)
 also affect the reference count of the objects pointed to.

 I'll need a better explanation with more careful tracking of the reference
 counts before accepting the patch.
