PeriodicalExecuter fails to fire in Internet Explorer 6

Reported by Ville Koskinen | October 31st, 2008 @ 04:14 PM | in 1.6.1

In Internet Explorer 6, PeriodicalExecuter sometimes fails to fire. This is due to a try-finally block that's missing a catch block -- which in IE 6 means that the finally block is never executed. The fix is to add an empty catch block.
