Internet Explorer and the 1 item remaining bug

We've started using Selenium 2 / WebDriver to soak test our application, and were caught once again by a bug in ie7 and ie8 that randomly causes the browser to hang, waiting for some resource to finish loading, even though the page is visible and works fine.

I hit the problem a year or so ago and solved it by hacking something in prototype.js, but can't remember exactly what. Thankfully there's now a more recent version of prototype (we're stuck on grails 1.1.1 which is bundled with prototype 1.6.0), so I upgraded to prototype 1.6.1 and problem solved :)
