I don't know why this works (all I did was "try a few things"), but if you'll add {clear: both;} to
the selector 

#drop_downs div:hover span,
#drop_downs div.sfhover span

then IE seems to be willing to cooperate. If I was to hazard a guess (and it's ONLY a guess) this
appears to be a toggling behavior similar to the Guillotine bug [1], (which sometimes can be sloved
with a clearing element appropriately placed.)

Anyway, this fix didn't seem to cause problems for my Mozilla or Opera browsers, but if it does,
just use your favorite hiding technique....

Hope that helps,
