This could be the IE Peekaboo Bug:

"Why would you care about standards support? You can code things that work in 
IE, and that's fine - nobody really uses anything but IE, coding for all 
browsers is a waste of time. Now what would you rather have a development team 
doing, working on standards support or adding in cool proprietary things, like 
3D powerpoint-style page transitions, that will make their web "experience" 
that much better" -- unnamed Microsoft employee
