This issue does not expose its self when setting IE to a backwards compatib=
mode. (Developer tools || X-UA-Compatible)

Perhaps, it does happen from time to time.

That is a place to start.=20
I think you run into a :hover bug, if I recall correctly it shows up more o=
li element. Removing the :hover selectors from the conditional comments wou=
allow the menu to appear.
If I understand the effect you are trying to produce, perhaps background-co=
may be a better choice.=20

It is well known that "problem avoidance" is an important part of problem

so that the problem does not occur in the first place.
