animated loading gif not animated in ie8

Hi,

I have a few ajax sites that use an animated gif to show loading at page load. In ie7 and all new versions of FF, it works fine, however testing in ie8, the animations starts for a second, then halts entirely until the page is loaded. Is this a known issue? It doesn't appear to be publicized thus far in forums, etc. The curious thing is that it only seems to occur at page load. Other instances, where i'm using that gif on the page itself to do some asynchronous call or other, work fine.

Any suggestions? The code is attached below.

Thanks

Bill
<div id="loadingdiv" style="display:block;position:absolute;top:244px;left:529px;width:332px;height:332px;background-color:#FFFFFF;padding:5px;color:#FFFFFF;font-size:15px"><img src="/img/loading.gif" /></div>
