We've been pulling our hair out of our heads trying to
figure out what could be causing the leak :-).
We have a case open with JTAC, but they have us trending
memory usage over a number of days, it's running slow.
Refreshing to hear someone else has seen this in the field.

We haven't gotten this far, although we've seen an average
increase of CPU usage by at least 3% daily on M7i's running
with 1.5GB of DRAM on RE-850's.
We're quite surprised Juniper could have missed this, if it
is indeed a bug, as we are easily seeing this issue on a
new, fully-configured box not plugged into the network, just
running some burn tests - and memory usage creeps up slowly,
day by day.
Not loving 9.4R1.8 so far...
