Yes, and it's not loaded on the SF config.

1. I can't in my conscience consider that a solution given the inherent
insecurities of having a php script that allow access to *any* world

2. It doesn't work for me with IE6. I still see the load flicker.

At this point I just don't think it's worth it to obfuscate to
accommodate such an inferior product as IE<=6 is. It's not worth anyones
time to spend on it. I think that if IE users are sufficiently bothered
by such things as flicker they should either upgrade to another browser,
or wait until the IE7 upgrade is available.
