JavaScript memory leaks fixed in IE6 on Windows XP

Looks like security update MS07-033 includes GDR fix 929874 for JScript memory leaks in IE6 on Windows XP. The description seems to indicate that the fix is good for memleaks of both the circular-reference and closure variety.

There are of course a lot of people taking the "cold, dead fingers" approach with IE6, so this is great news for us on the Cosmo team, and for anyone developing large-scale Ajax apps. Kudos to the guys on the IE team for doing something right.
