IE leaks memory when removing child elements with bound events (until page is unloaded)

Reported by: ajpiano Owned by:

This is somewhat vague as it is coming in from a third party, however, initial analysis of .remove() on a container with child elements that have bound events appears to cause memory to balloon in IE until the page is unloaded.

Granted, this is far from a performant approach to creating and binding elements, but it's worth investigating.

The bad news is that this is a memory leak that appears to be new in 1.4. http://jsbin.com/ewone/9 is the same code in 1.3.2. The elements can be added and removed and the memory stays within the same area, whereas it balloons in 1.4.
