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

Reported by: ajpiano Owned by:

Component: event Version: 1.4

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. 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.
