Possible Memory Leak in *Dead* Process

I have detected a possible memory leak in ten WS-C6504-E, the *Dead* process seems to be the one holding more than 1 MB of memory without relinquishing it any time. The *Dead* process is not a real process. It only accounts for the memory allocated under the context of another process which is terminated.

I did not find a BUG on the SXH6 image that might be causing this leak, it is normal to have a significant chunk of memory in such a state ¿?

I was entering the show processes memory sorted holding and show memory dead commands at 4 regular intervals of 2 hours and the same process is continually holding more memory.

Does anybody know if this is a real problem or a expected behavior ¿?.

I have attached some information that I captured.
