Background Image Paint Bug

IE7 has problems painting the background image of a div. You can move over the page and it repaints it white! The bug appears to be triggered by a line of code referencing a non-existent element.

Test page Workaround is included

I've since found this bug can also be triggered with similar code that does not include the line that causes it here. What's more, it can also occur in IE6 and below! I have therefore filed a new bug report, though this one still remains valid as it only affects IE7.
