For the archive - it was not a javascript error. IE 6 in this version has a 
lousy SSL 
implementation. This worked with apache 1.3. Since apache 2.x was changed, you 
have to use 
a special configuration for IE 6 to avoid this problem. Furthermore we assume, 
that it was 
also a combination of the proxy configuration plus the IE 6 the company uses ...

So the solution was to change the apache settings - no javascript or prototype 
error ;-)
