I don't know what the causing issue is, but the following takes IE7 for desktop (or IE8/IE9 in compatibility mode) down:

Alpha 4.1


Repro: just click on the above links.

For some reason this doesn't reproduce on a Windows Phone 7 device.

I wonder if these are related?

Thank you,

I confirm, I have the same behavior.

scottjehl Added new throttledresize special event, including unit tests. This e…
…vent prevents browsers from running continuous callbacks on resize, which we use internally for orientationchange in browsers like IE. It still ensures that a held event will execute after the timeout, so logic that depends on the final conditions after a resize is complete will still execute properly. This improves performance noticeably, and... Fixes #1496. Fixes #1848. Fixes #1422.

The included tests pass most of the time, but they need improvements as they will occasionally fail due to faulty timing in the tests themselves, as far as I can tell (the code tests out fine in our functional demos).
