When binding an event to a window other than the current will throw an exception on unbind of that event in ie8, as it attempts to delete off the window.

Pull request to fix the issue can be found at

Following code is a test case:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <iframe name="test"> 
    <script src=""></script>
        var testFrame = window.frames["test"],
            callback = function() { console.log("called"); };

I created a test case, but haven't checked it in IE8 yet.

Confirmed. Believe it happens on delete cache[ id ] in removeData
