Dwm.exe memory leak when resizing simple WinForm application

I created very simple Winform application in VS2010 (just a standard template File->New->Project->C# Windows Forms Application).

After several form resizes the system memory consumption can increase by 1Gb or more! And this memory is not returned to the system after application closing. Selecting Classic theme or killing dwm.exe helps to get memory back.

Here is the simple video I recorded to show the problem:

What can I do to get rid of this leak? Is it known issue?
