Asterisk Chanspy and G729 License Issue

Hi We are using G729 for our sip trunks. Our extensions use G729 as well. When I try to spy on a channel with chanspy, I observe that the G729 licenses keep getting used up but do not get freed up even when I hang up the Spy / Spying Extension.

Is there any way we can free up the licenses when the spying of a channel is over?

When I do  g729 show licenses I get the following output.. And with every channel that is spied on, the encoder count keeps increasing.

2/0 encoders/decoders of 16 licensed channels are currently in use

Licenses Found:
