I have what I think is a pretty basic function going on that fails in IE everytime. The code is below.  The javascript is first, followed by the ajax response.

In IE, the ajaxForm() function doesn't resolve to success, but it does in every other major browser on Windows and Mac.

On IE, the error: function() returns "parseerror" from the textStatus variable.

What can I change to fix this?
$('form#insert_person_modal').ajaxForm({
	dataType: 'json',
	success: function(data, statusText, jqForm){
		handle_error_array(data.error_array, $(jqForm));
		if('insert_id' in data){
			$("div#insert_person_modal_popup").removeShadow().hide();
			$('#teams_rosters_person_id').val(data.insert_id);
		 $('#teams_rosters_person_id_autocompletor').val($('#insert_person_modal_first_name').val() + ' ' + $('#insert_person_modal_last_name').val());
		}
	},
	error: function(XMLHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown){
		alert("error thrown " + errorThrown);
		alert("text status " + textStatus);
		alert("Request " + XMLHttpRequest);
	}
});


AJAX request (as JSON):

{"error_array":{"home_association":"The Association you have entered is not a valid option. Please select another Association and try again."}}
