Memory leakage with jQuery 1.6 and jQuery 1.8.16 on IE 7?

Hi there,

I tested two blank pages on IE7

The first page


<script src="/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="/jqueryui/1.8.16/jquery-ui.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>




The second page


<script src="/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="/jqueryui/1.8.16/jquery-ui.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>




After each refreshing with F5, IExplore used 2 or 3 more megabytes memory with the first page. However it did not happen on the second page.

Does jQuery 1.6.2 brings some memory leakage issue for jQuery UI library? It also happens on jQuery 1.5.1, 1.6.1.

Without the jQuery UI library, there is no noticeable memory leakage with jQuery 1.6.2 though. However we really need jQuery UI library for our project.

I don't think we'll be able to spend the resources to identify the source of the leak without more specific information. However, given that there is no noticeable leak with jQuery 1.6.2 alone, I would file a ticket on the jqueryui bug tracker.

We have the same issue, but with ONLY jQuery 1.6.4 on the page. It repros by simply refreshing IE7 and watching the memory go up...up...up.

It's a pretty easy repro - blank page with jQuery included.
