I believe if you response.end the page, the objects may linger until either
the connections timeout (any db connections, for example, and
records/recordsets contained within) or the engine itself removes the
objects from memory.  Of course we all know how well this works... just look
at the amazing uptime of any Windows server!  We tend to get at most a month
out of ours... doh.  Then again we're talkin NT4/IIS4/ASP2 so that may make
a difference.  Anyhow, I digress, yes it will clean up after you to a
certain degree.
