#572: Memory leak in _insert when using rank 0 input
 Reporter:  cdavid     |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect     |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal     |   Milestone:          
Component:  numpy.lib  |     Version:  none    
 Severity:  major      |    Keywords:          
 The function _insert has a memory leak, and this shows when using for
 example cdf functions of distributions classes in scipy.stats (see scipy

 The fix is trivial: just call Py_DECREF on ainput in rank 0 case, as in
 general case (the attached patch avoids separate code path for memory
 cleaning instead).
