Confirmed IE7 behaviour submitted is a bug. Additional testing in IE8 and IE9 shows the bug appears to be limited to 7.0.

The test case works fine in FireFox 3.6.10 and Chrome 6.04.

live test case

name is not a valid attribute on <div> elements, so unreliable behaviour can be expected. Don’t do this!
