app_pwm_init drives excessive current


I am using app_pwm in low power application on nRF51822 with soft device S110. Today I measured power consumption and found the current was ~1.5mA during advertising and it dropped to ~500uA in system_off. I tried to find out where this current came from and was able to reduce it to ~50uA removing app_pwm_init from the code. I tried to use app_pwm_uninit to disable the timer because I didn't need pwm all the time, but the consumption was still high. Does it mean app_pwm is not compatible with low power applications and if where is any work around?
