Lightroom 5.7 Memory Leak Reviewing Full Screen

When reviewing photos in the library mode, fullscreen, each photo that I navigate to uses more and more memory. After reviewing about 300-400 photos, it will exhaust all 12 gig of ram and I have to close Lightroom (5.7). It's easily repeatable on my system, and happens anytime I review photos. I can monitor memory with the task manager, and it increases with each photo viewed. I'm using Windows 10 x64. Thanks for your help!

Same for me. It happens in Lightroom 6 in Windows 7 x64. The problem begins after reviewing 40-50 photos, the memory goes up to several gigs and the new photos freeze to load remaining in "Loading" state and the application doesn't show the photos. Closing the aplication at this state terminates the UI but the process remains taking several gigs of memory and the only way to close it - kill in task manager. 
Actually pretty the same happens even not in Full Screen mode, but in Loupe View. I just review the photos marking them with Reject flag and after couple of dozens files the next file remains in "loading" state and whole this stuff happens the same with the difference that I can mark a little bit more fotos in Loup View than in Full Screen View.
