      Why does the Response time - ghosting test, the 2nd test on this page
      have jitter in the moving white lines in IE?

      The frame rate drop % shows 0% and I've tried various refresh rates and 2 lcd and a CRT on both C2D and a quad Intel with IE7,8 on Vista 64.

      In some other browsers there are jitters on some runs, but in IE it's not smooth ever.
