Fixed  new user registration: recaptcha in IE6

For people (still!) using Internet Explorer 6, recaptcha image verification doesn't load on the registration page. As you might imagine, this makes it difficult for them to register a new account.
  • This issue also exists on vBulletin and IPB.
  • If the registration page is reloaded, recaptcha displays properly.
My solution involves giving the user a link to chrome/firefox and cursing at them. Maybe there's a better one.

This seems to happen randomly. A refresh seems to usually take care of it.

It's very strange. It appears that the callback to show the captcha isn't being called, and with some tests, it seems that's because IE6 isn't finishing the challenge request (or at least not running the JS properly).
