For IE <= 6 you may need to obtain the a csshover.htc file and implement 
it as:

html, body {

Get one from: www.dottedi.biz/codesamples/csshover.htc . It may break 
CSS validation but you can sort of hide it by moving it into a separate 
stylesheet.  I will add this note to the documentation in my CSS in the 
menu examples at www.dottedi.biz/codesamples/ .

Also to improve stability try:

div#hmenu ul.level2 {
top: 31px; ==>> try 30px might be less sensitive
left: -1px;
