I think what he's talking about the issue described at
I was CC'd on an email thread about this last year - IE can sometimes call
xhr callbacks at inappropriate times (like when in the middle of a JS
function call). Summarizing the thread, it seems that invoking certain JS
functions in IE (like alert()) can cause IE to re-enter the message loop and
start processing messages which can cause things like XHR request callbacks
to be invoked.
I'm pretty sure this is better classified as a bug in IE rather than as
expected JS language behavior, though.
