I've read through a couple of other threads on here, describing how they've had issues with autosave on new posts.
Internet Explorer 7 (and possibly other versions, haven't tried) doesn't seem to handle whatever's being returned thru AJAX when the autosave runs.

/wp-admin/js/post.js tries to call the
autosave() (as text fields are being populated.)
