Memory leak in TinyMCE with WP 3.2

After updating to WP 3.2(.1) the editor isn't as slick as in 3.1 and the window hangs for some seconds quite often (garbage collection?). Especially when selecting text or moving the cursor via keyboard it slows down/freezes for up to several seconds. Also the resources are quite high and the cpu has a lot more to do than normally. When switching to html view the problems disappear.

For now I haven't tested in other browsers than Windows 7 64bit Firefox 5.0 with (not running) Firebug, Web Developer Toolbar and English&German dictionary but at least in another blog still running at 3.1 this problem did not exist (until update to 3.2.1 now)
