People who are working in IE 6.0 for a longer time, start getting timeout issues randomly after sometime.
Anonther site that has an API for ruby...addresses this issue like this

"IE6 Timeout The infamous timeout issue with IE6 in a deployed environment. Most of you have noticed that ZiYa is working great on IE6 localy, but are getting a timeout once you‘ve deployed to your server. We have added a :cache option to the ziya_html helper which forces the browser to refresh the url. By default this option is set to false. The other issue with caching an IE6 is that you will need to setup your request header in your controller as follows :
def load_chart
chart =
response.headers["Cache-Control"] = "no-cache"
render :xml => chart.to_xml

For now, you could switch to a decent browser eg. firefox :-)

Yup i do use firefox....but in many my company policies (rubbish though) still state to use ie6 and majority has to use this.
