Hello All,

I'm having issues with a nagging little bug in
IE7 relating to using sortables.

I have main div that contains other divs that
I make sortable like so:

Sortable.create('main_div', {tag:'div', constraint:'vertical'});

This works great in all browsers the child divs
sort with no problem. However, I'm using AJAX
to add extra child elements to this main div
and each time I add a new div I'd like to add
it to the main div sortable, so this is what I do:

Sortable.destroy('main_div');
Sortable.create('main_div', {tag:'div', constraint:'vertical'});

This works perfect in Safari and Firefox but in
IE7 the newly added items are not draggable and
thus can't be sorted.

I'm using prototype 1.6.0.2 and scriptaculous 1.8.1

Anyone have any recommendations or having the same problem?

Thanks,

D
