Standby raises error if target is destroyed in IE9

Reported by: mduggan Owned by: dante
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7.9
Component: DojoX Widgets Version: 1.7.2

Blocked By: Blocking:


If the target of a dojox.widget.Standby is destroyed via dojo.destroy(), IE9 raises an error then next time the Standby's _size() timeout function is called:

 SCRIPT16389: Unspecified error.
 dom-geometry.js, line 693 character 4

which is where it is calling:

  ret = node.getBoundingClientRect();

Calling standby.hide() also fails for the same reason.

The problem appears to be caused by IE garbage collecting the object even though the Standby still keeps a reference to it. Simply calling removeNode() does not cause the same problem, but .

The attached example works correctly in Chrome 19 and Firefox 10 (the standby disappears as soon as the dom node is destroyed), but fails in IE9.
