      I don't know if this is limited to 6 but this definitely seems to be
      IE-specific problem. The issue is that the include generated by
      CommentAuthenticatorServlet is getting cached. So, when you post a
      comment and the page gets redisplayed, IE includes cached HTML
      fragment which has the previous math question. The solution is to
      output cache-defeating headers in CommentAuthenticatiorServlet.doGet
      () method:

      response.addHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
      response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
      response.addHeader("Expires", "-1");
