IE7 freezes when showing reportviewer

When I add a reportviewer and a blank report to a simple asp.net 2008 page IE7 freezes. It works with firefox, chrome, and other versions of IE. Is there a compatability issue with IE7? Is the reportviewer production ready or is it a buggy tool? Should I rather go with crystal? I have used the reportviewer in winforms without a problem. In fact, I have classes that generate rdl from a table to generate reports on the fly. I would like to use that with web pages, but if it is buggy I do not want to go near it. Here is the asp.net page and the RDL.

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="WebForm1.aspx.vb" Inherits="WebApplication1.WebForm1" %>
 

<%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=9.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>

        <rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" Height="400px" Width="400px">

I assume this is using MS SQL Reporting Services.  Is that correct?

No, I am not using reporting services. I would like to use the report in asp.net and populate it from a .net datatable.

Since you ask about Crystal I assume it isn't Crystal.  Is the the Data Reporting tool included with VS?

Nobody answering, I guess it either cannot be reproduced or cannot be solved. I upgraded to IE8 and it works. I hope that this issue was specific to my my copy of IE7 and that the reportviewer works out in the field. I haven't seen on the internet anybody else complaining.
