find memory leak

I have some WeakReferences and they aren't turning null when I expect
them to. I have verified that a WeakReference's behavior is as expected
under simpler circumstances, so I assume I must have some "rogue" strong
references in my application. Does IDEA have the ability to scan the
heap for references to an object, or should I file an RFE?

IDEA doesn't have this ability, but you might try the Heap Analysis Tool
(http://java.sun.com/people/billf/heap/).
