This is essentially the same as bug 1380630. So the resolution there applies to here. We accept that using DirectWrite is the source of this, and that the benefit of using DirectWrite for fonts outweights the slight increase in memory usage. This likewise only affects a portion of our Windows 7 users, but all of our other Windows release platforms were already using DirectWrite.
