HWinfo huge memory footprint

HWinfo64 takes up a huge memory footprint after it is left running for over 2 weeks (PC not rebooted for over 2 weeks).
Is there a memory leak going on?

Refer to attached image capture taken 2020-05-17.
The version of HWinfo64 is in the image.
If HWinfo is closed and restarted, the memory footprint shrinks dramatically.

Which HWiNFO windows were open, Sensors too?
If yes, was the "Log all values for Report (consumes memory)" option in sensors enabled?
When I took the snapshot, only the Summary page was opened.
Sensors page was closed.
I just checked, "Log all values for Report (consumes memory)" is enabled.

Let me try to disable "Log all values for Report (consumes memory)" and monitor the usage.
I disabled "Log all values for Report (consumes memory)" and the memory footprint remained the same.

I restarted HWinfo, and the memory footprint shrank (as expected).
Let it run for 2 weeks, then I'll post back my observation.

OK, waiting for your feedback. No need to run it for that long, 1-2 days should be enough to see a higher memory consumption if there's any issue.
After switching off "Log all values for Report (consumes memory)" and monitoring over a couple of days, good news, the memory footprint no longer grows.
