Exactly which version is this?

Which sub-process is eating the memory?

Can you get a talloc dump using 'smbcontrol $PID pool-usage' for
whichever PID is leaking the memory?

Does the problem reproduce on a current Samba 4.11?  

Our new LDAP server design is much more memory efficient, particularly
if you have pathological clients that search for the whole DB and then
keep the socket open.
