Description

In QGIS 2.14.7 and 2.18.2
when I export a Shapefile using "Save As" from the context menue of the Layer the memory-consumption of QGIS (as shown in the Windows-Task-Manager) rises ~ the size of the Shapefile, even If I do not open the newly created file after the export.
The Same happens when I directly use QgsVectorFileWriter.writeAsVectorFormat(vlayer, path, 'utf-8', None, "ESRI Shapefile")
as well as when I use the Bulk vector export plugin and.
Even If I create a new project or open an other project directly after the export of the new vectorlayer the memory consumption stays high.

In QGIS 2.8.4 everything was fine

Thanks
Peter
