This is definitely still a problem.
after going through 10-15 images, I have to kill the process, and refresh the page. Memory consumption jumps to 800+mb, things run slow, and if process not killed and restarted, it crashes eventually.
Same behavior is replicated on MacOS X, Win XP Enterprise, Win 7 enterprise and ultimate, 2013 server.
I have screenshots if that will help.
