Comment(by marco):

 Depends on the size of the leak, which is not known at the moment. If it's
 not a really big leak I'm skeptical that any of the tool available to
 measure memory enough will provide consistent enough results to prove the
 leak is fixed. Too many things into play, caches, shared memory, python gc

 The only way might be to use guppy or a similar tool to verify the objects
 are freed.
