Storage.swf throws 13 runtime errors when exiting IE

When I have Storage.swf loaded in IE7 and enable showing alerts for all script errors, exiting the browser causes it to throw 13 runtime errors before exiting--one for each ExternalInterface? callback that was registered.

The runtime errors originate in the Flash plugin as it tries to delete the ExternalInterface? callbacks from the Flash object instance. It looks like something is causing the instance to be destroyed before the callbacks are cleaned up.

I've commented on and filed since I feel that this is buggy behavior in the Flash Player itself that could be a little bit smarter about its cleanup. However, it's been suggested that this may be an artifact of some onunload cleanup -- something causing the Flash object instance to be removed before the Flash Player plugin does its own cleanup.

For an example in the wild:

  1. Launch IE7.
  1. Enable alerts for all script errors.
  1. Visit
  1. Exit the browser -- you should experience the storm of "A Runtime Error has occurred" alerts from "Line: 52" that say "Error: Object required".

dojox/storage is abandoned/deprecated (work is being done on various modules to support local storage, but not with Flash). Closing as wontfix.
