User can actually change Function.prototype.constructor to point to
something else, and removal of that something else should not really
release it.

var o = new Object;
o.hello = function() { trace("hello"); }
Function.prototype.constructor = o;
delete o;
Function.prototype.constructor.helo(); // expect a trace
