When I look at it, I see the GC hitting an object with a null tp_type, and
a refcount of 1. This is monster bogus - but normally (non-GC) it would
just be ignored and sit there as a small memory leak.

I find that if I do this I get a vast vast number of RestrictedPython
cycles leaking (according to the manage_debug screen) and memory consumption
goes through the roof.
