Continuous music playback causes dramatic RAM usage

Building up a playlist of songs and leaving it running in Haiku results in a memory leak that could flood a medium sized village within a day. :-) I assume, from the behavior I'm seeing, that each time a new song starts, it leaks a bit more RAM. After 24 hours, I've seen memory consumption over 400MB, and it just keeps going up, the longer the program (MediaPlayer or SoundPlay) is left open and running song after song. This is a serious problem for anyone (like me) who needs the OS to play music for days, weeks, or longer, nonstop.
