We are observing memory leak of Store._vm while using registerModule/unregisterModule.
On heap profiling we found that the oldVm instance is not getting garbage collected.

I have created an demo link to illustrate the above mentioned problem
jsFiddle link

Probable Solution:
De-reference the oldVm instance on the same function scope where its getting instantiated (i.e. resetStoreVM() )

The above can be achieved by adding following code inside resetStoreVM function.
oldVm = null; // This is the missing code

function resetStoreVM (store, state, hot) {
    var oldVm = store._vm;


    if (oldVm) {
      if (hot) {
        // dispatch changes in all subscribed watchers
        // to force getter re-evaluation for hot reloading.
        store._withCommit(function () {
          oldVm._data.$$state = null;

      // Existing Code
      Vue.nextTick(function () { return oldVm.$destroy(); });
      // The OldVm Object is still in heap even after destroy
      // Appropriate Code
      oldVm = null;

Attached google chrome (V 72.0.3626.96) heap snapshot and file.
