It is quite likely the delaunay module's fault. There are 3 or 4 memory
allocation systems operating in that module: malloc (I think), new/delete, some
custom memory pools in the actual Delaunay triangulation library, and Python's.
I wasn't terribly familiar with C++ when I wrote the wrappers, so it seems
likely that I screwed something up there particularly given the error message
that you see.
