Memory and markers (adding/removing)

P: n/a
I have a site that uses Yahoo maps. I place markers on the maps - the
images for the markers reside on my webserver.

The site also uses polylines.

I find that when I add a batch of markers, memory usage increases.
However, when I remove them, it increases even more. When I navigate
away from the page, memory consumption remains high.

Does anyone know why this might be?

It may be well-known IE memory leak. Don't use closures and circular
references to avoid this.
