    Description

       

      Version and repro info in the gist below.

      Not sure if I'm not understanding something from this https://arrow.apache.org/blog/2019/02/05/python-string-memory-0.12/

      but there seems to be memory accumulation when that is exacerbated with higher arity objects like strings and dates (not datetimes).

       

      I was not able to reproduce the issue on MacOS. Downgrading to 0.14.1 seemed to "fix" or lessen the problem.
