Here is an issue with Request.JSONP.

When I use a timeout, clear() is never called and the script element stays on the page forever!

Demo: http://jsfiddle.net/kguelzau/pZG66/

The timeout method should be modified to call clear() directly:

timeout: function(){
  if (this.running){
    var script = this.script; // local copy due to possible race condition on reused request
    this.running = false;
    this.fireEvent('timeout', [script.get('src'), script]).fireEvent('failure').clear();
  return this;

Loosely related to #1052
