Question Memory leak in muon capture in Geant4.9.0.p1

Hi,
We observed large memory leak when a stopping muon got captured in a
detector.
Starting from Geant4 novice example#2 ( in Geant4.9.0.p1), change the 
physics list to QGSP (since the physics list in example#2 does not has 
the muon capture process), use the mu- as the incident particle, its 
energy is set to zero, you can find that the memory increases rapidly 
with event number.
We looked at G4MuonMinusCaptureAtRest, it seems the problem might come
from the nucleus deexcitation.  
We hope the bug can be fixed soon.
