 Running the script under massif seems to indicate a potential memory leak.
 This happens with cdf calls for (at least, I have not tried other
 distributions) poisson and norm. Interestingly, calling with _cdf does not
 seem to leak. The allocator which keeps growing according to massif is
 array_alloc (see attached screenshot)
