I've been debugging a JavaFX application with a customer and we've found
a tremendous memory leak in StyleManager when using icons.

This bug makes JavaFX 2.x completely unusable because the application is
using up to 1.5GB and more within a few mintues! Has anyone seen this
and if I file a bug could I expect a bugfix in FX2?
