There is a simpler scenario to get an error:

  1. open replacebyclass.html sample,
  2. click on "Commander" cell in "Mission crew" table,
  3. From the context menu select Row -> Delete Rows.

Result: "'compareDocumentPosition' is null or not an object"

Only deleting last row works properly.

The bug was because of #10308. This hack fixed issue on IE10 but cases issue on IE8 (love IE). It seems to be enough to limit this fix only to IE10, because everything is fine on IE8 & IE9 without this fix.

The reason why tests did not show an error is because you need 4 rows in table (instead of 3) to have a crash removing second row (have I already mentioned that I love IE?). If you have only 3 rows you will get only small error in you console (and not in each case).

Changes in t/11058 and corresponding test branch.
