New submission from Brian Curtin <brian at python.org>:

Reported by Ryan Wells (v-rywel at microsoft.com) of Microsoft, in reference to a problem with the Module Doc viewer on Windows 8 when using Internet Explorer 10. This was reported on 3.2.2, but it's likely the same on 2.7.

Reference #: 70652
Description of the Problem: The application Python Module Doc is automatically closed when Internet Explorer 10 is closed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.       Install Windows Developer Preview
2.       Install Python 3.2.2
3.       Launch Module Doc.  Start Menu -> All Program -> Python -> Manual Docs
4.       Click on the button open browser
5.       It should open the site http://localhost:7464/ In Internet Explorer 10 and the contents should be displayed
6.       Should be able to view list of Modules, Scripts, DLLs, and Libraries etc.
7.       Close Internet Explorer

Expected Result: Internet Explorer 10 should only get closed and we should be able to work with the application Module Doc.
Actual Result: The application Module Doc is closed with Internet Explorer 10.
Developer Notes: There is likely a difference in return values between IE8 and IE9/10 when launched from the app.
