I'm unclear what the actual problem is. Does this illustrate it, or is it something else?

This is actually an IE9 issue (not technically a jQuery issue), and yes it's a serious problem. This happens when you use .wrap() or simple JS that moves the IFRAME - or if you simply have an IFRAME inside UI-Dialog (to me this is the biggest issue).

Microsoft claims they do this to fix a memory leak.

AFAIK, there's no code workaround for this issue.

Yeah, I'm not entirely sure that this is something that we can fix. I'll pass this along to the IE guys.
