Insane memory leak and crash with pattern along path

Bug Description

It happens with 0.48.5 and 0.91. I tried Windows 7 and 8.
The number of steps to reproduce the bug changes sometimes, but most of the times it goes like this:

Open Inkscape
Create a circle
Create some squares
combine the squares
open path effects window
add Pattern along path to the circle
copy combined squares and paste them into the pattern
and now - change the repetition option to repeat and stretch

That's it!
Sometimes it works but when I try to paste another pattern into the circle, or change anything else withing the patterns options, it crashes the same.
when I open Task Manager Inkscape's memory constantly builds up.
