Comment(by hnla):

 Just to add a comment to this issue which I too ran across.

 Checking the graphic finally showed that a 1px graphic had been used,
 generally this can be considered a bad idea as regardless of size each
 graphic requires to carry all colour bit depth info, the smaller the
 graphic the more often the browser has to repeat that graphic across and
 down the screen which has an impact on a machines system resources.

 A better approach especially with a solid graphic like this which has a
 alpha transparency level or not  is to create a new graphic ~6px wide,
 taller than need be to cover element height (allows the element to
 increase in height without running out of graphic)and to then repeat the
 graphic across the x plane i.e repeat-x.
 This is the approach I took and clears up IE issues.
