#476: Poisson and Binomial memory leaks
 Reporter:  danhs                           |        Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect                          |       Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal                          |    Milestone:  0.6     
Component:  scipy.stats                     |      Version:  0.5.2   
 Severity:  normal                          |   Resolution:          
 Keywords:  memory leak, stats, statistics  |  
Comment (by danhs):

 I found it by just using a while loop and watching windows task manager
 memory column for python interpreter.

 import scipy.stats

 while 1:
     scipy.stats.poisson.cdf(1, 1)


 Running the above code causes the python interpreter to use memory and
 then continue to use memory.
