Please feel free to enter a ticket, and to attach a patch.

We disabled registration due to some problems with spam and forgot to 
turn it back on.  It's on for now, but I'd recommend registering soon 
because we are likely to turn it off again if we start having spam 
problems again :).

When you do file a ticket, please file it with a description of the 
*problem*, not a description of your changes.  i.e.  "Reloading an 
athena page in IE 6 and 7 causes a socket leak", not, "Make 
sendCloseMessage work in IE".  It would be helpful if you were as 
detailed as possible about the problem.

It would also be very helpful if you could write some tests which 
demonstrate the problem; since the main development team of athena does 
very little testing in IE, a test object which thoroughly documents and 
fakes each version of IE's behavior with respect to these hooks would be 
especially helpful.
