I have a strange error in Internet Explorer when trying to clone / copy and array from a window to another window.

Window A
 has an array called arr1
 opens Window B using javascript

Window B
 has an array called arr2
 changes the value of arr1 to arr2 using window.opener.arr1 = arr2;

Works fine until you close window B and then Window A arr1 gives an javascript error 'the callee server not server application is not available and disappeared' when you try and access arr1

I understand that arr1 might be a pointer to arr2 so when i close Window B it loses this reference, but this is only the case in Internet Explorer.

I have tried many methods to try and copy / clone the array but they all have the same issue when i close window B.
