$.ui.ddmanager.current not released on droppable _destroy

In the days of client side frameworks and SPAs, considerations need to be made regarding client side page switch and optimizations and cleaning of assets.

When we examined and profiled our SPA on a page switch scenario, we've noticed that a jQuery-UI plugin is holding a whole element tree. A further examination led us to a droppable and the "global" $.ui.ddmanager.current.

It seems that when a droppable is being destryed via _destroy, $.ui.ddmanager.current which is linked to this droppable, is not taken care of and keep a reference to the droppable and all of its tree elements. When a client side framework is involved, that makes it worse.

That can quite easily be treated.
