#1917: Memory leak in 2.0.0.dev-Unknown
  Reporter:  jiffyclub   |       Owner:  somebody
      Type:  defect      |      Status:  reopened
  Priority:  highest     |   Milestone:  2.0.0   
 Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:  devel   
Resolution:              |    Keywords:  memory  

Comment(by mwiebe):

 I can see it very clearly with the following procedure:

 1. Open Task Manager/System Monitor to see memory usage

 2. Run the following, which shows a jump upwards in memory usage.
 >>> import numpy as np
 >>> a = np.zeros((10000,10000),dtype=np.float)
 3. Run the following, which drops the memory usage back down in an older
 version of NumPy, but not in master.
 >>> del a
