Google ChromeFrame incompatible with Oracle Hyperion DRM

If you have installed the Google ChromeFrame add-on for Internet Explorer (MSIE) 7 or 8, you may find that you cannot login to Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management (DRM) After MSIE loads the DRM login page, you may see some Javascript errors and when you press the Log on button, nothing happens.

Coincidentally, I started seeing this error message on another web site: ERROR: Possible problem with your *.gwt.xml module file. The compile time user.agent value(ie8) does not match the runtime user.agent value (safari). Expect errors. It seems that Google ChromeFrame add-on, which I installed to improve Javascript performance when I was using IE7, can send the wrong user-agent information to a server (even if the add-on is disabled). I have since upgraded to MSIE8, which is fast enough, so I no longer needed ChromeFrame and I uninstalled it.

Now, I can login to DRM and the GWT error messages no longer appear.
