potential solution

I'm not really submitting this for review at this point because I haven't done
sufficient testing (and there's also a good chance that the check-in is not
good). But preliminary testing seems to indicate that it doesn't break existing
functionality, and it certainly does fix the www.google.com/ig memory leak.
However, FWIW gmail still leaks a lot of objects, so it's quite clearly due to
another issue. So even after we close this bug out we may need to open a new
one for gmail or something.

Now the only real potential downfall I could see is if it's a possibility
through normal execution that the Window.m_frame loses its document and then
gets it back. If that can happen, then with this change the document will get
garbage collected in between these two points.
