Gwenview memory usage

I use Gwenview to view .tiff files, these are Architectural D drawings 
scanned to .tiff. They range in size: 350K>1.1M.

The feature I kike about Gwenview as a viewer is I can view a directory 
full of tiff files and browse thru them using the toolbar.

The downside, it seems, is that after viewing about 10 or so files  all 
8gb of memory is used, all other apps have been swapped out so checking 
mail or any other task is slow ..actually the workstation becomes to 
slow to be productive.

Memory is not released between file this normal?  This is 
first app I have noticed using all memory so quickly..seems unusual.
