Description (partial)

There is a memory leak in the "ascii-cfg" process. It happens when customers use the archive feature with the "write-memory" command. The leak happens when entering the "copy run start" command which also triggers the archive to automatically run in parallel and backup will be performed.

-> Behavior seen in version 9.2(3), 7.0(3)I7(7) and 7.0(3)I7(5a) 
-> write-memory command is used:
