py.test run leaks memory

Issue #8 resolved

repo owner created an issue

when running py.test from the toplevel directory, you can see how memory consumption steadily climbs up to about 1.5GB (on a 32bit system, likely more on a 64bit system - system with 2GB or less memory may run into trouble due to excessive paging).

I think the problem is in conftest.py and what it does (does not) in init_test_app() and deinit_test_app(), and also the nesting of that for module, class, method.

It might be also related to router_index ressources maybe not getting freed again.
