The trailing-comma problem occurs in IE6/7, but not in IE8. (Thank you, 
I think Will's problem *doesn't* occur on IE6/7, but just IE8, if I 
understand the situation correctly:

I looked around our code a bit, and our own "object expected" errors 
here were being caused by some javascript assuming that a certain object 
would always have an object returned from a method, when in fact 
sometimes it didn't in older versions of IE :/
Not so helpful for you, if this issue only appears on recent IE versions 
though.. confusing!

Will, can you check to see if you're getting Internet Explorer 8 running 
in "IE8 standards mode", or if it's falling back to the older quirks 
mode or IE7 mode?

Try this:

alert("Document mode = " + document.documentMode);
