Accordion requires theme CSS to function in IE

UI downloaded with no theme. Accordion plugin fails in IE.

In IE the first show/hide is successful and subsequent show/hides throw an error (invalid argument). This behaviour is seen in IE7 & IE6 in a simple test case using the assets from SVN trunk and markup from the accordion demo supplied in the development bundle.

Temporary fix

By including theme CSS the problem does not occur.

I believe I've tracked this down to ui.core.css, specifically the rule .ui-helper-reset. If a valid border property is present the accordion functions correctly in IE.
