Total crash when JS traversal function hits invisible element

Internet Explorer crashes when a DOM tree traversing JS function is run on an element with display: none; position: absolute that has child elements.

The crash occurs when assigning the result of a unsuccessful document.getElementById() call to a property of one of the children in the hidden element.
