Anyone knows why this happens?

The many mouse/hover listeners in the IDE instantiate some objects as the mouse moves. It would indeed be nice if this could cost less RAM, but as long as the memory can be freed by GC when needed, I don't think it's a blocker issue.
Did you check with older versions of the IDE whether this was happening a while ago already?
