ProcessBuilder still leaking memory

Hi all,
I am still seeing a memory leak caused by process builder
It seems to be the same as reported here:

which is claimed to be fixed, but in 8u45 and 8u60 it still reproduces on
my Amazon Linux
Linux ip-10-208-67-36 3.2.30-49.59.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Oct 3 19:54:33
UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

can I assist somehow in resolving the leak? Feel free to contact me off

What is interesting, is that contrary to the OP, my real application dies
with java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space on an array allocation.
The java process remains alive, but does not react to kill -3 or anything.

Best regards,
