Ticket #5010 (closed bug: duplicate)
Dialog memory leak (1.3.2 / 1.4a1)
|Reported by:||malsup||Owned by:|
Not sure if this is an issue with core or with the ui Dialog class, but displaying the dialog over and over causes excessive memory leakage in IE. Tested in IE8.
Sample test page which shows the problem:
The mem leak also occurs when using blockUI instead of Dialog so it may be a problem in core. Tested with both 1.3.2 and 1.4a1 with same results.
Drip.exe also shows tons of leaked DOM elements.
I also created a ticket in the core tracker: http://dev.jquery.com/ticket/5666
