it seems that IE6 (maybe also IE7, I had no opportunity to test that)
is unable to set the fillcolor and strokecolor attribute correctly for
nodes that have not yet been appended to a visible parent vml node.

The fix for Renderer/VML.js in http://trac.openlayers.org/ticket/1172
does an additional comparison of requested and set fillcolor and
strokecolor, setting them again if they differ. This is done right
after a node was added to its parent vml node.

I do not know if I am missing something here, but I spent hours
investigating that issue, and did not find a better solution than the
above workaround.
