    Applet Life Cycle not respected in IE browser family

    Description
    After an applet is supposedly destroyed, it's init () and start () methods are called again when in fact they should not be called again.
    I reproduced this with gwt and no smartgwt in the picture, but I am posting anyway in case somebody has a workaround?

    Use case:
    1. Create a Tab
    2. Add an applet
    3. Applet's init () and start () methods are called, as expected
    4. Close the tab via tabSet.remove ()
    5. Applet's stop () and destory () methods are called, as expected
    6. Applet's init () and start () methods are called again, NOT as expected
    Not only that, when init () is called, it contains the same applet parameters specified in #1.
    Note that in Chrome, this works fine, meaning that the applet's init () and start () methods are not called again, and the applet object seems to be gone from the Java console...

    1. the SmartGWT or SmartClient version and browser version(s) involved;
    SmartGWT 2.3-2010-10-05 and 2.3-2010-12-05
    GWT 2.0.3
    Does not work in IE 6, IE 7, and IE 8
    Works fine in Chrome 8.0.552.224

    I reproduced this with simple GWT code and so I do not think this is a SmartGWT issue, but I figured I'd ask and see if anybody has any advice.
    Here is the GWT groups thread I started:
    http://groups.google.com/group/googl...33ccfbe13c530#

    2. for a server-side problem, the complete logs generated during processing of the request;
    DNA

    3. for a client-side problem, the contents of the Developer Console (see FAQ for usage);
    DNA

    4. if there is a JavaScript error, the stack trace logged in the Developer Console (from Internet Explorer if possible); and
    DNA

    5. sample code.
