LightWave Client: memory leak occurs on each request


An issue exists in the character encoding implementation which causes a  small memory leak to occur on each request. Over time, CLIENT process memory use will grow and the process will ultimately abend when it is no longer able to allocate additional memory. Note that it is not necessary to use the character encoding feature in order for the leak to occur.
