 At this point, I feel reasonably confident that "Invalid Argument" errors
 are only the result of attempting to create Vector layers before the DOM
 is ready. If someone can still recreate this error against a modern
 version of OpenLayers with IE, we can investigate why this might be
 happening. The example given here is not simplified, and has way too much
 code to figure out what might be going wrong.

 In general, creating vector layers should happen onload. Trying to create
 them before that will typically result in strange or unwanted behavior.

 ahayes reported 20 months ago that the test page provided worked for him.
 Checking in IE right now, it also works for me. With no reproducible bug
 condition or test case to work off of, there's not much we can do about
