I appreciate your responses. I got interested in the issue, as presented by the original poster, even-though it is also not a problem for me. My collection is still small enough to have it's album art fit within the RAM on my system, so no crashing.

I apologize for being part of the OT bickering. The suggestion made, to only use small non-embedded art, was (and is) not an acceptable solution for me.

I selfishly hope this issue is addressed before it becomes a problem for me. I now check WA's memory usage (if I have scrolled through a lot of art images) and if I find it excessive, I simply close and restart WA. The only problem with this work-around is that sometimes the main WA process does not exit with the rest of WA. But, that's another isolated issue.
