I've been able to narrow down on my system that enabling "Evolution Data

First screenshot shows the Evolution Data Service disabled and memory function
Second is toggling the Evolution Data Service from off to on. After ~10-5
seconds memory consumption appears at a rapid rate.
Third is after switching Evolution Data Service from on to off and killing the
indicator-datetime-service process showing the memory issue no longer exists.
If Evolution Data Server is not switched to off killing the indicator-
datetime-service process only restarts memory levels at the initial
value and consumption growth appears nearly immediately following its
