Ticket #3553 (closed enhancement)
use of removeChild in IE leaking memory

attached is a zip file with a small test you can run after patching and 2 screen shots, on of the sIEve results of reqular jQuery vs a modified version I made to test the theory. In the screen shots you can see that the memory reclaimed in the Delta's its on average higher in the modified version.
Take note that the tests will run 250 iterations before it will stop.
This is only an issue in IE.
