Interactive Report hangs when using a custom image for "Actions Menu Image" attribute.

In APEX 4.2 and 4.2.1, when using a custom image in the "Actions Menu Image" attribute in an Interactive Report, get a hang or a "Type mismatch" error in IE7/8. This happens when refreshing the report through Actions menu items
(select column, filter, rows per page, etc.) This works fine if the "Actions Menu Image" field is left empty. The hang or error doesn't seem to happen in IE9 (unless using compatibility mode), or in any non-IE browser.

The same works fine in APEX 4.1.


 Upgraded to APEX 4.2.
