Apparent Memory Leak when deleting rejected photos in LR 5.5

I have experienced the same phenomenon twice recently while running LR 5.5 64 bit on a Windows Machine with 12GB of memory. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this. When deleting a large number of rejected RAW photos in the library module (+500), Lightroom takes over all of my computer's available memory (and then some), essentially locking up my computer until some memory frees itself up (which takes a very long time). Even after running through the action, Lightroom seems to hold on to a whole lot of memory This feels like a bug. I am not doing anything differently than what I have done without incident for years with previous versions of LR. I cannot understand why this occurring. 12GB of memory should be more than enough to handle anything LR can dish out. I realize that not all of that memory is available to LR, but most is. And I am not sure why deleting rejected photos should be a memory consuming exercise in the first place
