Just to report back: Removing the following code fixed the crashes.

img { behavior: url(/libs/iepngfix.htc); }

Ultimately, we changed the line to

.png img, img.png { behavior: url(/libs/iepngfix.htc); }

to limit the png fixing script to only images with class png or images 
descendants of elements with class png.

Here's what we learned:
1. Be sure to limit the number of behavior scripts, calling them for 
many elements really bogs down IE
2. Be sure to use the mime type "text/x-component" for HTC files and use 
proper expiry headers

Thanks again for your help.  I don't think I ever would have found it 
without your suggestions!
