Comment (by cdavid):

 Well, the memory leak is obvious when looking at the code, since the
 function arr_insert create a new reference of avals in any case, and this
 is dereferenced for all cases but rank 0 input.

 Your example does not show any leak, indeed... Since the memory leak is
 obvious, I think we would better apply the patch anyway. I will try to get
 the test code I used to detect the leak in the first place.
