[Stackless] Stackless breaks generators that do not yield

It seems there is an INCREF/DECREF-mismatch in stackless when you
have generators that do not yield. If you build stackless
--with-pydebug you'll get the following badness when running the
[sune at melpomene:/usr/src/stackless-python/stackless/src]$./python bloop
Adding parser accelerators ...
Python/ceval.c:165 negative ref count -1
Python/ceval.c:129 negative ref count -1
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "bloop", line 5, in ?
python: Objects/frameobject.c:510: PyFrame_Fini: Assertion `numfree == 0' failed.

Stock Python 2.2.2 does not produce the "negative ref count"s and
also does not hit the PyFrame_Fini assertion. That's as far as I
have gotten sofar, not knowing much about Python internals, I hope
someone here will be able to track the critter down.
