Memory Leak Loading PPTX with embedded Excel chart

I have a powerpoint presentation, which has a single slide with a single Excel linked chart in it. When I try to open this presentation using Aspose.Slides v15.6.0.0, it takes a very long time and consumes gigabytes of RAM. Eventually it will throw an OutOfMemoryException. Attached is a zip file containing a demo console project in visual studio / C#, as well as the powerpoint demo file. Just build & run the demo to see it break.

We have run into this with numerous other powerpoints which contain excel linked charts; however it does not seem to happen every single time there is a linked chart.
