Running the following jsfiddle:

I set a input checkbox to "true" when clicking on a link, and then programatically trigger the onClick handler for the checkbox field.
In Chrome, all is well but in IE11 the checkbox is reset to false when the onClick handler is executed.

Any ideas on why IE does this?
