When trying to find a Memory leak in my application I stumbled over a strange behavior of eclipse:

When I open a view (a 3.x style view, using the views Extension Point and inheriting from ViewPart) and retrieve a Memory dump I can see 1 instance of this view. We did not expect anything else so far.

Now I close the view and retrieve another heap dump. The view instance is still there occupying Memory. The dump shows references from WorkbenchPage and PartService.

After reopening and closing the view a second time, I get 2 pending instances.

The view implementation itself is empty:
public class SampleView extends ViewPart {

	public SampleView() {}

	@Override
	public void createPartControl(Composite parent) {}

	@Override
	public void setFocus() {}
}


Any thoughts on this?
