Ben-

At a quick glance, I'm going to suggest this is related to IE's
duplicate characters bug. It appears that some of the content in your
righthand menu (the curves you mention) is getting duplicated. Under
certain circumstances and depending on what content is duplicated, this
can cause IE to crash outright.

Try going to
http://www.positioniseverything.net/explorer/dup-characters.html and
then take a peek at your code and see if you can solve it that way.

I'll try to take a longer look at it here soon as well.
