In our system, when using the page with the DnD in IE7 (only in IE7--no other browser, not even IE8 in 7 compat mode) the first drag of any particular draggable is fine, but any subsequent drag causes IE to crash. We traced it all the way down through the creation of the clone helper and into the call to removeAttr() which is made against the clone for stripping off the ID. Inside of removeAttr(), the check for `jQuery.support.getSetAttribute` comes up false, so jQuery attempts to clear the attribute and then retrieve it from the DOM to pass it to `elem.removeAttributeNode()`. That call to `elem.removeAttributeNode` is where IE crashes.
As I said, I cannot reproduce it, so I understand there is limited help that can be offered. For the same reason, I am quite hesitant to open a bug.
I just wonder if anyone has ever seen anything like it or has any troubleshooting tips for me.
An entire work day of debugging and tracing with a co-worker led us to find that this only happens when the draggable items appear inside of a UI tab. We have successfully produced a simplified test case and submitted a jQuery UI bug: http://bugs.jqueryui.com/ticket/7538
