That's why I mentioned the fact that there is no error at all!  If
there was an error (better, a dialog that asks you to confirm going to
the link) then that would be fine.  But IE refuses to go to the link
in complete silence -- there is no indication that something is wrong,
it just doesn't work.  That's bad enough that it should never happen.
(It's so bad that even though I just read about the problem 30 seconds
before, when I tried it I still kept left-clicking with stronger
force.  It's completely counter-intuitive.)
