Not a fix, but a workaround. Have you tried rebuilding and installing python-twisted-core 8.2 from F12/F13 ?

I tried to see if I could reproduce using valgrind, but wasn't able to reproduce the memory leak, perhaps I didn't wait long enough. Sorry I don't know what the differences are without looking into SVN and comparing the differences and I'm not that familiar with RAT's ALSA code.
