map.centerAt  causes Tiled service to disappear in IE.

I am developing a web application that uses map.centerAt() to pan the user to different search results.  While debugging my application, I noticed that from time to time my base map would disappear.  I created a sample app that uses map.centerAt() to pan the map between LA and New York when the map is clicked.  I inserted the html below and also attached it as a txt file.  What I am seeing is that map.centerAt() works well when the user is zoomed out, but if they are zoomed in past level 17 the map goes white and the tiled service flickers when I pan with the mouse. 

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this behavior.  I am only seeing this in IE9.
