IE6win won't allow cloneNode to other frames

IE6 throws errors when an element is cloned from one frame and appended to another. This includes pop-ups.

The test page shows two frames and buttons which trigger various combinations of cloning from (hidden) elements in a frame and appending to another.

In Firefox 1.5.09, all permutations work. In Safari 1.3.2, all permutations work at some times, but silent crashes occur at others

IN IE6win, an unappended clone can be held in a variable in another frame (eg. its parent), but it must be appended to the frame from whence it came.

I think this means that DOMloading in pop-ups must be created afresh OR cloned from elements in the pop-up itself.

Test page Workaround is not included
