Events registered on img objects don't fire if the image has an associated image map, and the targeted part of the image is part of an area.
NOTE: Events only fire in MSIE 6. They do not fire in Opera 9 (Windows/Mac), Firefox 1.5 (Windows/Mac) or Safari 2.

I think this is actually correct behavior and a bug in IE. We might reconsider if there are real sites depending on the IE bug.
