memory leak onReady() in IE + patch

Reported by: pieter_degraeuwe Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:


Just adding the following causes a memoryleak in IE when you navigate a lot.

$().ready(function() {


I detected it using the tool Drip.exe; I found out that DOM elements with the id __ie_init were causing the leak (rings a bell?)

anyway, I did patch jquery.js (attached) by checking in the bindReady() for the existence of an __ie_init element.

If it already exists, I don't write it anymore.

I hope you can include this patch in the next release.

This is resolved in the latest SVN. However, it is possible that text might still leak. If it does please create a new ticket for the text leak.
