in thread Delete parse data spreadsheet::parseexcel

they contain circular references (workbooks reference worksheets and vice versa, etc.), so they don't go away until the end of your program

If that's really the case, please open a bug report.

However the source does use Scalar::Util::weaken, and my very basic testing shows that the objects do get released when I set the reference to the workbook to undef.

    Looks like you're right. This has been fixed since around 2007 in v0.30.
