Possible memory leak with dojo Gauge widgets

Description (last modified by bill)

It seems that each time a gauge is updated with a new value, memory is consumed that is not released. I have experienced this issue with both dojox.widget.AnalogGauge? and dojox.widget.BarGauge?.

The attached test takes a AnalogGauge? and updates its value 60 times when the start button is pressed. Using Google Chrome's memory profiler both before and after the test one can see this clearly.

We have many of these widgets on a dashboard which are automatically refreshed. Overtime, this slows the browser down and requires our webapp to be restated.

We tested for the issue in 1.4 and 1.6.

BarGauge also seems to have a memory leak associated to SVG objects.

I have a similar problem with GlossySemiCircularGauge?:

When updating min and/or max in a loop there seems to be a big memory leak. Checking if min/max have changed since the last update and only updating if they differ solved the problem for the moment as min/max only change seldom.

I have this exact issue using GlossyGauge?'s and dojo 1.7.2. I have a webapp with gauges that update every minute and heap is always increasing until chrome dies. The biggest data seems to be an array of SVG elements.

dojox/widget/gauges has been mostly replaced by dojox/dgauges. As such, closing as patchwelcome.
