repeatedly load images into a hidden DIV

On windows, enable the safari "developer menu", then launch this test and click
"run" (note: it is not necessary to open the inspector itself to repro)

Observe that the memory consumption of Safari.exe rises very quickly (0.5mb/sec
for my settings)

The test is repeatedly setting the innerHTML of a display:none DIV. Each time
with the same images, so they are served out of the cache. However, their
headers are copied into the inspector's resource list each time! Eventually my
safari crashes.

I tried running this test on mac os x safari 3.1 (also with developer menu
enabled), but could not get this problem to repro (same thing if webinspector
is actually opened before/during the test.

I tried re-proing on a windows webkit nightly, but the test and inspector
didn't seem to even be working, so the outcome is inconclusive.
