net: Possible IE memory leak with xhr

Reported by Jake Archibald | September 8th, 2009 @ 08:09 AM | in 1.7


I did some experiments with XHR and turns out IE leaks cross page if onreadystatechange isn't set to an empty function after use. I don't think we do this cleanup, but this needs confirming.

Basically, stick a massive string outside the onreadystatechange listener in glow.net and call glow.net.get/post on an interval and see if memory creeps up (basically a glow-specific version of my test above). If it leaks, plug the leak.
