[ka-Map-users] Problem in IE

Thank you for you advice! 
I changed the order of function calls and it works fine now.
It looks like it is the only one way for now: to keep mySetMap() the
very last one to execute. This is what comment says:
kaMap.selectMap( name )
select one of the maps that kaMap knows about and re-initialize kaMap
this new map.  This function returns true if name is valid and false if
the map is invalid.  Note that a return of true does not imply that the
map is fully active.  You must register for the KAMAP_MAP_INITIALIZED
event since the map initialization happens asynchronously. 
As I understand it means that it still does something after true is
returned and that "something" prevents next code running. It is strange
than it stumbles only in IE.

Thank you very much!
