infoWindow with null title behaves differently in IE 7 than other browsers

Take the simple infoWindow example and change the infoWindow title declaration to read:

map.infoWindow.setTitle(null);


Run this in FireFox or Chrome, click on the map and note that the infoWindow's title section is minimised (this is my desired outcome).

In Internet Explorer 8 (in Document Mode: IE7 Standards), the title is blank but is not minimised.

This is causing a problem in my site as I am inserting an HTML object into the infoWindow's contents, and it's showing scrollbars in IE (since the empty but maximised Title section is taking up space I need for the HTML object). If I add padding to accommodate this, it looks ugly in every browser except IE7.

Is this a bug? Is there a way to force IE7 to minimise the Title section when it's empty?

Thanks,
Steve
