Sortable forcePlaceholderSize has no effect in Internet Explorer

Blocked by: Blocking:

With latest jQuery + UI and Sortable, setting forcePlacerholderSize has no effect, at least not in Internet Explorer 7.

Here's a test case:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<script src="/jaste.js"></script>
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {
          forcePlaceholderSize: true
    <h1>My Page</h1>
    <div id="sections">
      <div class="section">
        <h2>Section 1</h2>
        This has some awesomeness.

      <div class="section">
        <h2>Section 2</h2>
        And this has other awesomeness.

      <div class="section">
        <h2>Section 3</h2>
        This is not awesome at all.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery UI project! I can no longer reproduce the issue using the latest jQuery and jQuery UI.

If you can still reproduce it, please feel free to reply to this ticket with a test case showing the problem. Thanks!
