I don't know of any leaks.  Got a bug report?  Test case?

Most common problem is not understanding that only the keys are weak 
referenced.  The values are strong references.

Var obj:Object
Var dict:Dictionary

dict[obj] = 1; // weak reference
dict[1] = obj; // strong reference and memory leak
dict[obj] = obj; // strong reference on value side and also a memory leak.

Subject: [flexcoders] Dictionary memory leak

Anyone know if this has been fixed?

There was a reported memory leak a while back (at least in my memory ;) ) and 
I'm trying to work out if it's safe to use Dictionarys again...
