It looks like I found the culprit.  It is line 79 in 
dojo/src/storage/browser.js which links to a macromedia shockwave site. 
This line:


will cause a Mixed-Content error in IE if the you are running on a 
secure server (https).  By modifying the line to:

..the problem goes away.

Attached is a bare bones html file that will reproduce the problem.  
Just by including dojo.js (0.2.2 Kitchen Sink version) in this file and 
placing it on a secure server, you should see the error reproduced in IE.

I have attempted to enter this bug into Dojo's bugtracker.  The defect 
number is #550.
As this is my first bug report, please let me know if I did anything wrong
