You know, now that I think about it, I saw this problem a few months ago 
with an app that I wrote for work.  I installed the app on about 15 pcs 
at work.  One guy was really zealous about using it.  He kept adding new 
records to the database which meant he was constantly displaying an 
FXTable, going to an edit screen to add a new record, and then being 
taken back to a new rendition of the FXTable.

I remember he called me over to tell me that after adding about 20-25 
records the app crashed.  I tested it a little and found that, if I 
constantly opened and closed a window that had an FXTable on it, the 
memory used gradually increased and eventually the program would crash.  
Because I had some icons on the same screen as the FXTable, I always 
assumed that it was because I was not correctly destroying the icon 
resources when I closed the window, but now that I see David's test 
code, I realize that that was probably not the case.

Hope this helps!
