That’s a very neat workaround which should leave at most a couple of bytes of uncollected garbage, until the bug is squashed.

Of course most people wouldn’t need to worry about the problem at all, the memory leak involved would hardly be noticeable for most stacks, it’s just that it accumulates over time.

I have submitted the bug, and also the Windows 10 saving problem which is really my concern, to QualityControl.
