Hi everyone.  I think I found the issue and so I'm replying to my own
question in case someone else has the same issue.  Turns out that some
of our IE6 users didn't have all of the latest patches from Microsoft
including one that fixed jscript.dll. Found this page that was very
helpful - 
Apparently the users had an older version of the jscript.dll that was
causing the issues with any AJAX request.  Installing the patch or
upgrading the user to IE7 fixes the issue.  Thanks - FYI
