IE image swap lag

Image swaps (javascript coding) in IE have a little "lag" on mouseover. If
you leave the page and return (but without refreshing) the lag disappears and
the mouseover effect is instantaneous--- as it is in Netscape and Mozilla.
Anyone know what this IE glitch is all about and if there is a correction?
Much thanks.

Don't know much about JavaScript coding, but I'm thinking it may have to do
with the cache - if the image is in the cache and it takes a couple seconds
for it to be 'found' there the first time, if the cache (TIF folder) is
large, or has a large index.dat file. I have seen this behavior on
occasion.

Since this involves scripting, you may also want to post this issue to a
scripting newsgroup as well:
