Know issues using Vista w/IE 7?

XcitR
I am able to view the demos from the shadowbox homepage properly in XP/IE7, XP/Firefox, Vista/Firefox, but when using Vista and IE7, the background doesn't properly dim and the images open in a new completely black page. This also occurs with Lightbox2's demo page (although Lightbox 1's demo works fine.) Are there any know incompatibilities between Shadowbox and Vista/IE7? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have no idea how IE7's behavior differs from XP to Vista. I don't have a computer running Vista to test on! Silly me for assuming that the same version of IE would behave the same way across different versions of the operating system...ugh

What I'm finding is around line 1891 on shadowbox.js, if I set it to use the overlayBgImage rather than the overlayColor, it'll work on my browser. Takes a lot longer to load, and the transitions are a bit choppy though. I'm wondering if there's another way to use the options.overlayColor and transparency... If I come up with anything, I'll post back.

From what I can tell, on my system at least, it's the ATI display Driver. If I remove it, transparency works fine on IE7, but no "Vista" effects. Catch 22, I guess.
