[omniORB] omniORBpy memory leak using PyErr_SetObject

There are a few places in omniORBpy-3.2 which leak python exception objects.

The code seems to assume that the Python API function
    PyErr_SetObject(PyObject *type, PyObject *value)
will steal a reference to "value", but it does not.

Attached is a patch to resolve this problem.
