IE9 and 10 have a bug where clicking a link that does not preventDefault, but also does not navigate to another page or anchor, can do some pretty crazy things to event listeners, making them fire for the wrong events and/or not fire at all.  This often results in (possibly quite nasty) JS errors on a page.
