Radeon Crimson Edition 17.X.X Memory Leak?

I'm not sure if this is something related specifically to the newer Catalyst Display Drivers, Chipset Drivers, or a combination of the two. 


Radeon Settings is constantly freezing up.  Specifically when I try to access the Gaming Tab and adjust profiles and/or scan for additional games.   More specifically Radeon Settings: Host Application.    States it's not responding.  


Memory used jumps from about 77mb to around 3.5gb as it struggles, locks up, and eventually crashes.   


Games run just fine after Radeon Settings restarts and I keep my fingers off it.   Aside from the few that I need to disable Crossfire and tweak and then it's a real pain.




I'm running the following setup, so maybe it's just a matter of the platform being new, but it still needs to be fixed.  Hopefully the 17.4.X comes out soon and it works normally.


CPU:  AMD Ryzen 1700x

Motherboard:  Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5  F5D Bios

Memory:  32GB GSkill  3200  (Currently stuck at 2666 due to Bios)

Graphics Card:  Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro X2 (Crossfire)

Power Supply:  Coolermaster 1300w

OS:  Windows 10 64bit

Chipset Drivers:  17.3.1

Video Drivers: 17.3.3  (I've tried rolling back to 17.2.1 and all have this issue for me.)


Is anybody else seeing this?   Is there a work around or any suggestions?
