Don't measure used memory -- look at the output of the script: does it
report this:

Number of instances left (should be zero): 0

or this:

Number of instances left (should be zero): 1

The script doesn't leak large amounts of data: it leaks exactly 1 object!
But: if it doesn't leak that one object with your version, you've probably
accidentily fixed it along the way...
