I don't mean this offensively - but doesn't logic tell you that Google
may just have tested their JS on a browser as mildly popular as IE7
prior to releasing it?

I.e. whatever your problem is, it's almost certainly down to your
local implementation of it (or an error with your Analytics account?)

We've numerous sites running GA just fine across IE6/7/8/etc. A
problem of this scale would effect millions of people surely?
