Discussion here:

jQuery seems to leak a lot of elements in IE. You can test for them using Drip. Most of them appear to come from the object, caused by removeChild calls.

This does not appear to fix any of the leaks. See discussion linked above in the jQuery group.

The leaks at runtime caused by are fixed in SVN (at least according to drip). Feel free to reopen by attaching a test case (against SVN) that shows the leaks you are experiencing.

If you are concerned about the rest of the leaks on the jQuery page, file a bug and set component to "site". jQuery itself can't prevent all memory leaks from developers code.
