I just tested the IE update that will appear because of the Eolas patents, 
and it indeed shows an alert whenever it encounters an object tag with, for 
instance, a Flash movie.

Microsoft offers two possible solutions: a new noexternaldata=true attribute 
or writing out the entire object in JavaScript. Unfortunately neither works.

See http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/js/ietest.html with the IE Update 
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/ieupdate/) for a test case.
