..turns out the failure to take you there was caused by an unforeseen bug  
in IE's XMLHttpRequest support :-p
The postback to the /support/results-clipboard script uses XHR with a  
relative URL, it seems something about triggering that from a thread in an  
IFRAME causes IE to get confused and throw on send(). Should be fixed now,  
using an absolute URL for the XHR. I suppose I should have added a test  
case for the problem too - Anne, do you know if one exists?
