Problem with div height decreasing jquery

Hello Experts,

I am using the jquery accordion plugin to display a simple accordion menu.  It seems to be working fine in Firefox, but in IE7 the height of the div in each accordion panel shrinks each time it's opened and closed.  If you open and close it enough the div will shrink itself down to almost nothing.

Has anyone encountered this before?  Or know what might be causing it?

Thanks for any help.

There are a couple of other posts talking about jQuery accordion issues in IE 7.  The issue as these posts detail it centers around the lack of an explicitly defined border.  One way to solve it would be to define an explicit border for your according panels, but probably the better solution is to upgrade to the latest JQ UI version, 1.7.1.
