This is one (of many) memory leaks IE7 proudly has – cleaning memory for removed HTML element.

I've made a fix for this specific memory leak and will appreciate if this patch will be part of jQuery.

You can see the details at IE Memory Leak – jQuery Fix http://kossovsky.net/index.php/2009/07/ie-memory-leak-jquery-garbage-collector/

  • Obviously, you are welcome to improve it.

Is there a simple test case that shows when this is effective? Is it necessary for the garbage collector node to be attached to the document? A test case would allow testing some permutations.
