Ticket #4565 (closed bug: duplicate)
Creating a dialog leaks memory in IE6

I used IE 6.0.2800 on Windows 2000 SP1.
I am using the jQuery nightly build from May 28. I also included ui.core and ui.dialog at r2623.
Merely creating a dialog seems to cause the memory leak. Here is an example:
I use sIEve to check for memory leaks. When I browse to a page containing the above, and then away, sIEve reports 12 memory leaks. If I use jQuery v1.3.2 instead of the nightly build, sIEve reports 9 memory leaks. Every time I refresh the page, it leaks about 1.3k. IE6 via MultipleIE on Windows XP seems to exhibit the same behavior, but I cannot attach sIEve to it. IE7 on XP does not appear to have this leak.
The patch supplied in #4188 by ivarsv does not prevent the memory leaks seen here, so I believe this issue is distinct.
