HANA MVCC issue with table SYS.P_USERS_

The SAP HANA Troubleshooting and Performance Analysis Guide contains a chapter on "Multiversion Concurrency Control (MVCC) Issues". I have a HANA database (rev. 83) where quite often the number of versions raises over time to values up to 4 million. The SQL statement from the SAP guide gives results like this:

select * from m_mvcc_tables where host='host' and port='30003' and (name='NUM_VERSIONS' or name='MAX_VERSIONS_PER_RECORD' or name='TABLE_ID_OF_MAX_NUM_VERSIONS');




"host",30003,"TABLE_ID_OF_MAX_NUM_VERSIONS","3364958" -> table SYS.P_USERS_

In the HANA Studio I see a history of the active versions like this:

The table SYS.P_USRES_ contains 1645 entries. I suspect the users from the SAP BW system (table USR02) are being replicated into the HANA database (table P_USER_). The HANA database is also being used as a BO datasource. The SAP Troubleshooting Guide doesn't provide hints how to fix such an issue. Any tips?

    An update from HANA to has obviously fixed the issue. Now the number of active versions on table SYS.P_USERS_ remains below 300.000.
