Sure thing:

I was mucking around in _Acquisition.c with getattr, findattr, etc,
and I noticed checked to see if my code was leaky.
It was!  I then checked just vanilla code, and found the same
leak (only much much smaller).

So here is what I did to make things more visible:
In Wrapper_getattro, I simply added a while loop,
and another call to Wrapper_findattr before the return statement "
return Wrapper_findattr(self, oname, NULL, NULL, NULL, 1, 1, 0, 0);".
Loop it 1000 times for some fireworks, 5 times for a more modest
display.

Looping other calls (such as Wrapper_acquire before "    return
Wrapper_acquire(self, oname, filter, extra, orig, explicit, 
                           containment);" in Wrapper_findattr)
does not produce a similar leak.

So.  To reproduce:

Edit _Acquisition.c
Function Wrapper_getattro
add 
"    int i = 0;"
at the top.
then, if self->obj ... and all that, add:
"
while (i < xyz) {
Wrapper_findattr(self, oname, NULL, NULL, NULL, 1, 1, 0, 0);
i++;
}
"
where xyz is an integer of your choice.

Simply go to the index_html the root or any other object,
fire up task manager (I produced this bug on windows),
then refresh that page rigorously.

Note that this bug can be reproduced without modifying any code.
The loop simply amplifies the leak, making it easier to spot.
(Or the loop causes huge additional problems I am not aware of.
In any case, doing *something* clever to call Wrapper_findattr more than
once should make the problem easier to spot.)

Could you provide details about why you think there's a leak in the code
(what led you to Wrapper_findattr), and how to reproduce it consistently
on a blank platform (Zope 2.8.4 preferred)?

Maybe open a bug in the collector at
http://www.zope.org/Collectors/Zope/ also.

Thanks,

Florent
