Extreme memory use while opening drawings though PDM

A client of mine is having extreme memory use when opening a bunch of simple (250KB-1MB) files. When opening 10-20 drawings at once, SolidWorks memory use goes up at 1 GB/ second until all memory is full. They've seen it eat up 50GB of memory while opening only basic drawings. That is with PDM enabled.


Now they tried it by copying all the files locally and SolidWorks is blazing fast, with no memory issues.


It seems something has been configured incorrectly, or at least something's working incorrectly. Any ideas?
