In a web app I'm testing, on XP, attempts are made to close an open popup window. When this occurs, the popup window clears (renders the windows dialog background color), then loses focus, but doesn't actually close.

I will try and locate the exact JS used to request the close action but needless to say it works outside of sIEve.

PS I'm running IE8 natively on XP, and this particular app is running in the IE5 "Quirks" mode (no doctype)... (I'm not sure if sIEve uses an IE6 Trident engine or the OS's version of iexplore internally)
