He said he tried with 0.8.0 :)

I think most of the IE failures can be attributed to rather aggressive  
caching of AJAX responses by the browser. We may need to play with  
some caching headers here or use client-side hacks.

Opera 9.50 on Windows XP is behaving in a really really weird way that  
I haven't figured out yet. It *seems* to be sending the synchronous  
AJAX requests in random order or something.
