Widget factory does not clean up event bindings

The base widget binds three event handlers, but does not unbind them on destroy. See jquery-ui-dev thread.

Thank you Scott for reporting; here is my current workaround:

destroy: function() {


$.widget.prototype.destroy.apply(this, arguments); default destroy

see ticket;

code fixes <= 1.7.2 ; expect bug will be fixed in 1.7.3

if($.ui.version <= "1.7.2") {

this.element.unbind("setData." + widgetName);

this.element.unbind("getData." + widgetName);

this.element.unbind("remove." + widgetName);

will remove all events sorry, might have other side effects?

The fix should be as easy as adding these lines to the widget destroy method (approx line 300 in ui.core.js):

this.element.unbind("setData." + name); 
this.element.unbind("getData." + name);
this.element.unbind("remove."  + name);
