  Valgrind suppressions don't work on 64-bit systems

Bug description:

  The Python package helpfully ships /usr/lib/valgrind/python.supp,
  which is basically the upstream Valgrind suppressions file with some
  suppressions uncommented so they work on standard Python builds.

  therefore do not suppress false positive errors in

  See upstream bug http://bugs.python.org/issue12612 and upstream commit
  for the changes you need to do.
