Memory leak fixed. DocPane was holding reference to the last document. This is normally not a problem, however when the document is large, and will not be reused - meaning there will be no another ActiveContent on the particular pane, the memory will never be collected.

Thank you for submitting a pull request, it's great to see participation in this project!

Unfortunately, although the issue is valid, this request cannot be accepted. The first thing to note is that DockPane.m_activeContent should not be manipulated directly. It is set via the ActiveContent property which contains important state validation on the new value.

I believe the correct approach here will be to make sure ValidateActiveContent() is called on the pane when the last item is closed/hidden. The most appropriate place for this call is likely in DockPane.CloseContent() but I will need to verify that.

This method could be internal.
