memory leak with randn()?

I ran into memory problem when I run my simulation code in octave. I
finally traced the problem into randn() function. It seems that there is
some kind of memory leak. Each time I run the following program,
for counter=1:100000

'top' shows that the size of octave keeps growing. I have reported the bug
to bug-octave but it is not shown there so I guess it is somehow lost. I
glanced other bug reports and I have to point out that I didn't use ^C to
interrupt the executing but the size kept growing. Any work-around

I am running 2.0.16 that came with RedHat7.0. I didn't rebuild it.
