See the reproducer and analysis in the bug. 

The root cause for this problem is that `percent_of` returns `0..100` (percent) value of `nominator / denominator`. Which means if we feed `percent` and `100` there, this is an identity operation, returning the same value. And we wanted the conversion from percent to factor instead.

Additional testing:
 - [x] Reproducer stress test does not leak anymore
 - [ ] Linux x86_64 fastdebug tier1
