I can reproduce this consinstently across our corporate machines, but
the most recent images do not have the problem.

I'm sure it's an IE setting or possibly something else causing the
issue, but here goes:

Using 1.3.0 on SLES 10 SP1
When you click the "suggest password" button it runs a Javascript that
has a little pop-up with the suggested password.

Firefox works fine (big surprise)

IE 6 "pauses" and then closes itself. Event Viewer shows crashes with:

Application popup: IEXPLORE.EXE - Application Error : The exception
unknown software exception (0xc015000f) occurred in the application at
location 0x7c9431a0.

I have no idea why it doesn't like that java script, or why (on a more
recent Windows XP image it works fine).

Any ideas on what to track down as the cause?

It's not the AV software (disabled that, still crashes, plus the same
software is on the new image that works)

I'm a bit reluctant to put IE 7 on just for this purpose (eww)
