Apparent Memory Leak in Lightroom 5.3

I'm having an apparent memory leak issue with Lightroom 5.3. Editing simple IPTC metadata and reordering images on the grid quickly causes RAM use to go up until Lightroom, and the entire system, freezes. Restarting Lightroom starts the process again, but the RAM use quickly goes up. It usually freezes at about 6GB of use. I don't have a problem in the Develop Module or while flagging photos in the Library.

I tried deleting my Preferences file and immediately got the same result. I'm having this issue on two different computers, one a desktop, the other a laptop. Both have i7 processors running Windows 7 64-bit and 8GB of RAM. I recall having a similar issue several years ago with Lightroom 2 or 3 and Adobe ultimately fixing the problem with a new version. Any suggestions?
