Fix for IE Memory Leak

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.

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.
