Sample WCF Service for Memory Test

WCF Service with simpleHttpBinding running on Linux arm, is leaking memory in all versions after The first version that starts leaking memory is

For testing this problem, I attach a sample service with just a single method. 

 public byte[] GetSomeBytes(uint amount)
   return new byte[amount];

This WCF Service can be stressed with an similar like the following nodo sample. With this example the memory is increasing more or less 1Mb per second. 

var soap = require('soap');
var url = './single.xml';
soap.createClient(url, function(err, client) {
      if(!err) {
      } else {

simpleHttpBinding is an error, it means basicHttpBinding
Comment 2 Albert 2017-11-23 08:25:23 UTC
Don't understand why this should be fixed in a future release when the version that introduced the leak was released on March 2016 (more than a year and a half ago). 

Any workarounds available? This is also critical for our project.
