Note: if you refresh the page, the bug dissapear. But the bug is present the first time the page load. You have to re-enter the url ever time to reproduce the bug.

This is working for me. I ran your submitted test files against Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 and everything was returned back correctly via Ajax including the text reply.

Please feel free to re-submit your bug report if you can add additional details or test cases for us to investigate.
