See the ticket description at http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/14190 which identifies the code that fails. This impacts both jQuery Core and jQuery UI. It's not possible to easily reduce this bug because when F12 tools are open the bug does not occur.

Thanks Dave for reporting this issue to us.

I was finally able to track down a machine that was reproducing the problem, and have been able to confirm that this no longer reproduces on updated builds of IE11 on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, so I will be updating the resolution to "Fixed".
