[Chameleon] IE: scrollbar or dropdownlist and zoom

we've seen this kind of problem before.  See


The problem occurs because of a difference between how IE and Mozilla 
implement the event model.  The solution, IIRC, was to check the target 
of the event and make sure that it was the map image instead of an HTML 
element ... this would need to be in the code that checks to see if the 
mouse is over the map ...  I'll try to make some tests and let you know.

Can you please file a new bug about this.
