[Samba] samba AD DC eats memory

I have the same issue.

2 Proxmox6 VMs with 4 GB each running Ubuntu 20.04 with Samba 4.11.6

Imported about 30 Users from our OpenLDAP instance.

Both VMs are not doing anything since this is just a test setup.
There are no active Clients.

But after 2 weeks the whole memory is used up
and OOM kills everything until the systems are not reachable anymore.

I tried to pinpoint which process it is,
but could not find the process which causes this.
