In our applications we must support IE 8, and unfortunately we hit some leak, which is registered as Ticket #7054(closed bug: fixed).

While bug declared closed as fixed we can see that memory leak in IE8 like a mad. Not sure if something can be done about it.

The test case is:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Test</title>
  <script src="scripts/jquery/jquery-1.9.0.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<script>
function testLeak()
{
  var handler = function () { };

  $('<div></div>').html(new Array(1000).join(new Array(1000).join('x'))).bind('abc', handler).appendTo('#test').remove();
}

$(function() { setInterval(testLeak, 1000); });
</script>
<div id="test"></div>
</body>
</html>

Update: jaubourg has pointed that we have missed to define element with id="test". With this element leak stops.

Wouldn't the problem be that there is no element with id "test" so remove wouldn't do a thing (since you appended to *nothing*)?

Ah, you're right!
When we added div with id it has stopped to leak.

Thank you!
