studio theme - drop down menus disappear using IE

Using the studio theme latest version. wp 3.0.1
I have a problem with the few users that are still using IE when they hover over a drop down menu the sub menu items disappear when they attempt to select them. A bit annoying actually, you'd be surprised how you can turn this into a game. haha
I've seen this problem before with suckerfish menus etc , and realize its more specifically a WP problem, but wanted to find the recommended solution for this theme. Trying not to hack the theme if I don't have to.
Someone must have run into this before.
