Comment(by eldada):

 I have posted the question on http://stackoverflow.com/a/9245218/1204331
 and received an answer with a solution + a general way to solve similar
  The specific solution is to delete data.f
 After testing the solution proposed by pv (to gc.collect in the loop) I
 found that the del data.f solution is about 2000 times faster. The other
 proposed solution by pv (data.f=None) is as fast as deletion. I wonder why
 would the NpzFile class would be coded in a cyclic referring manner.
