Whoops, it was a coincidence, that happens a short while after the
page loading, not when I hover over the menu...

If I wait and ignore that error, *then* hover over the menu item, I
get an error in IE7.js (not sure why that's running when I'm not using
IE7, perhaps it's a multiple install issue (but user agent says IE5.5,

The error is at c.runtimeStyle[h]=c.parentElement.currentStyle[h]; -
c.parentElement is null.

If I detach the script debugger the submenu appears and yes the second
item is not clickable.

Bizarre, re-attaching the debugger, I can see the sfhover class get
appended and removed from the second link as I mouseover and mouseout
of it.

The link works perfectly when CSS is disabled too.
