Massive memory usage after using Multicharts for few hours

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

The memory usage of Multicharts become really large over time with auto-trading turned on. In my case, it can take up to 900MB! This issue also happens on MC 8.1 Beta 1.

Steps to reproduce this issue

It's unclear what's causing this behaviour, but it always happens everytime I use MC.net for autotrading with IQFeed (as data provider) and IB (as live broker).
Here are few cases when it might happens:
1. According to my observation, memory usage also increased significantly when there's ongoing bracket order submitted to IB.
2. Memory usage also seems to increase modestly over time even without any ongoing order.
3. Everytime you stop and then start autotrading also increase the memory usage significantly (This might seems not a big deal, but it's worth checking because it might be caused by same problem as above cases, however this is very easily reproducable and very quick to check).

I've demonstrate this problem to Henry. He found that the usage of TradeManager is the one that's causing the problem. The easiest way to reproduce this is to use built-in charting toolbar indicator as this indicator make uses TradeManager. Please ask Henry on the information to reproduce this problem.
