Anyone else get the bug in IE where text is messed up when you try scrolling during page loading? All the text is there, I can scroll initially, but almost immediately something else loads that prevents anything new from being displayed while scrolling. Quite annoying because it takes anywhere from 5-10 seconds to get past that step.

Just now, and I watched the entire "Outlaw" movie ad before the damn frame and buttons finished loading for it (I'm guessing they had loaded just after the 'screen freeze' came into effect). The only other page that seems to do this freezing to me is the Ars Technica Infopop forums..
