I've been thinking bout this problem since we first saw it several months 
ago. I'm beginning to think that IE has some problem with "undersized" gifs 
or super small images in general.

This is pure speculation, but I wonder if you added more "weight" (e.g. 
made the spacer.gif larger) that the problem would go away.

Like the friendly error messages that can appear when your custom error 
pages are under a specific size, I'm thinking that IE has a broken routine 
that fails at times because the spacer.gif is under a specific size.

Pure guess work, but I'm going to try it out tomorrow if I have time. If 
anyone else tries this idea, let everyone here know the results.
