Is the memory leak in TTree->GetEvent(entry)?

Dear rooters,

When I performed data analysis,I created a class(named Burst) to store the data in root files using the following style:

"f = new TFile("test.root",RECREATE);

t = new TTree("t","A Tree with Bursts"); burst = new Burst();

There is no problem in the process of storing,but when I used the stored data to analysis I met the trouble,the process of opening the files:

"TFile *fin = new TFile("test.root");

TTree *T = (TTree*)fin->Get("t");
Burst *burst = new Burst();
TBranch *TESTuDST = T->GetBranch("uDST"); TESTuDST->SetAddress(&burst);
Int_t TotBursts = T->GetEntries();
for(Int_t i=0;i<TotBursts;i++){

    T->GetEvent(i); ...................(memory leak)
delete burst;
delete T;

I found there is very big memory oocupied when using the operation T->GetEvent(i) in the loop which did not be cleared at the end of the loop. I didn't find the suitable member function in class TTree to deal with this problem. As I want to analysize more than one files every time, the programme always breaked because of the memory exhausted. Could you like to help me solve this problem?
