Please do not reload complicated pages in IE. IE does not free any memory when reloaded. If you are creating a web application use iframes that are hidden instead of reloaded.
I'm sorry that IE cannot handle something as crucial as releasing memory when leaving a page. I guess MS does this on purpose to make it harder to create web applications that compete with Windows applications :-)
Maybe there is something that can be done to at least improve the memory issues a little. For example one can walk through all JS objects and make sure that all references to DOM object are removed.

Subject: Re:Memory Leaks in Menu4
I've included Menu4 2x using <object> and scriptlet type, starting at a usage of 20MB of MSIE 6.* I refreshed a couple of times, and memory usage got a 40MB increase.
When disabling menu4, the memory leaks dissapear.
