Memory leak in LR4?
This week I've been cleaning up some of the details of my main catalog, and one of them is setting the ITPC copyright info. I've had an appropriate image comment for years, but these fields have been blank.
I set up a ITPC copyright preset to use. All it does is set the copyright, copyright status and rights usage terms fields. Then I selected a whole year's worth of images and applied the preset. To my surprise, this ran me out of memory! Yes it was 20k images, but I was only adding a reference to what, about 50 bytes to each of the 20k files. I quit LR and started it again, and observed that after it started I had about 1.2GB memory in use for LR4. I repeated the experiment for the next year's worth of files, and I watched in Activity Monitor as memory consumption grew from 1.2GB to 9.6GB! This doesn't seem correct to me.
Does this happen on other systems? Anyone know how to file a bug with Adobe?
