map does not work all the time on IE8 - onAnimate error from init.js file

I have an application(ESRI JavaScript API 3.2 compact) that should work on IE8. On IE8, for the first time, the map loads fine. Then if I turn on/off some layers and go back to map again, then the map goes blank(the slider and logo are still present) and get this error in the console -exception in animation handler for: onAnimate . But if I perform a zoom to extent operation, the map shows up. And it is not guaranteed to work all the time for zoom to extent operations. In any case, I get onAnimate error in the console and the map goes blank. This error seems to come from esri javascript api init.js file. Looks like it is something related to the pan and zoom animations of the map.

The application works fine on IE9 without any issues.

Can anyone provide some insights on this?

Please let me know if you need more details.

Thank you,
