Filter Search on Process Monitor causing WP's to eat up memory (V12.01)

Our Production Automation Engine crashed last night when all available memory got consumed by our WP's.
Just before this happened a user was performing historical searches using the Filters on Process Monitor.
Their searches resulted in Timeout messages.

It is possible that the user's search criteria was obscure.

Below you will see the WP's consuming all the memory available.

I have seen this happen before, but in test environments, not production.

Has anyone else experienced this while searching for historical data using the Filters on Process Monitor?
