You may want to try the packages that Louis publishes here:
Also, it would be great to check if a master build from source still
However ideally you would know what version last worked without a
memory leak, and build samba 4.14.7 form source do a git bisect (of
source builds) in between to find the regression. It could take some
time, but is a brute-force way to help us help you.
We did have a memory leak in some crypto code (the leak was in gnutls
actually) but I don't think that was in 4.11.
