Thanks for the tip.

I must say I was surprised to see so many memory leak alerts caused by
Boost; to the point I was doubting I was doing anything correctly. Not
very clean :-\

"In order to make it safe to call PyFinalize() we must register an
atexit routine which destroys these objects and releases all Python
reference counts so that Python can clean them up while there's still an
interpreter. Dirk Gerrits has promised to do this job." (from above URL)

Is this idea still alive and being implemented?
