    Noticed a huge memory leak in the x64 build (32687bc)

    Not sure if this is related, but noticed it a couple hours after VNC'ing in to my home pc, which had a video paused since a few hours before: (when I VNC in, it casues Aero/DWM to revert to basic mode while connected, possibly causing video issues during the transition).

    I noticed something odd in the past other days in a similar situation, where Windows raised a warning about low memory, even though I have 16 GB, and closed some programs automatically. Now I found the culprit to be MPC:

    This kept growing every second:

    Even after closing the current file, the memory remained in use, confirming the leak:

    It's definitely related to VNC, probably the Mirroring video driver. I checked today, once I connected to home pc with VNC, the numbers started growing, 1-2 KB/s. Even after disconnecting from VNC it keeps leaking memory and wont stop until you close MPC:
