SfChart DateTimeAxis memory leak

I've recently encountered a memory leak using a date time axis with an SfChart FastLineBitmapSeries. Sometimes it fails to display any graph data, and quickly consumes all of my RAM. Profiling shows that it is the axis that seems to be using it all, but I haven't been able to pin down the cause of the leak, except it seems to have something to do with whether data is being streamed to the graph before it is drawn or not.

Has anyone encountered this problem before and would be able to point me at what the cause of this problem might be?

I forgot to add that this leak only seems to occur if the application is full screen, too. Everything works fine otherwise.

Hi Devi,

Firstly, I couldn't build the sample for some reason.

Secondly, we fixed the issue on our end, but there is still an issue with the library that might catch out other people. We figured out that something was going wrong with our calculation for the range of the DateTimeAxis and we were occasionally sending a range where the end time was before the start time - when this happened, the Axis clearly got stuck in some sort of loop and started eating memory. It really should bounds check the range, and error if given invalid values. We would have discovered our error much more quickly if it had.
