There's missing in the bug report some test that Nahuel and me have been
doing on private. We've found that his script consistently leaks memory
(it seems unrelated to Python -> C++ transference because he's not
assigning the QDialogs to a parent, but it just can be my poor
knowledgment of sip/PyQt internals).

I _think_ I've found a leakage on Debian's packaged version of Qt (3.3.3)
that could be aggravating the behaviour seen on PyQt, but that could be
just a completely unrelated question.

PS: I'm sorry for not having this reported before; I'm just in the
    middle of some finals.
