Description

In IE 8 (possibly other IE versions, 8 is all I've tried), every page load results in:

Security Warning
Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection

Except the warning is apparently completely false - the page source shows nothing being pulled from HTTP, and even when telling it to pull "insecure" content, it never makes any HTTP requests at all from watching Wireshark with a filter on 80 and 443 to all hosts, all the traffic is HTTPS. The pages appear and function no differently regardless of whether you tell IE to load the "insecure" content or not.

Seems like an IE bug, but ~21% of the visitors to our website use IE (and hence probably the same using the web interface), that's too big of a chunk of users to write off an annoying pop up on every page load.

1.2.3 doesn't do this. It's independent of compatibility mode, does it with it on or off.
