Ticket #4566 (closed bug: fixed)
Including ui.datepicker.js causes a memory leak 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.
To reproduce: Create a page that does something simple, like:
Notice that the datepicker is not being used. Now browse to the page and away. In my case, I find 12 memory leaks (as reported in #4565). Now add the script "ui.datepicker.js", but make no other changes. Browse to the page and away, again. You'll find that there is one more memory leak than there was without the datepicker library. In my case I find 13 leaks.
sIEve shows the additional leaking element as a div with the id "ui-datepicker-div".
