Context menu not working on IE9 or IE10 (Bug #1138)

I've recently installed ChiliProject on Centos 6.3 running on Apache.
I've migrated all of my data from Trac, and everything appears to be working ok except for the context menu on issue lists when viewing in IE9 or IE10. This isn't a big deal to me personally (I can easily use Chrome or FF when working with ChiliProject), but some of my clients who will be using this system are locked into IE.
The same lists work fine when viewed in Chrome or Firefox.
However, when I view the list in Internet Explorer, the context menu does not appear when I right click on the the issue. Instead, the default IE context menu pops up.
The strange thing is that when I view issue lists on, the context menu works.
I found an old issue #419 here at ChiliProject that mentions this problem, but from what I can tell, this was fixed back in 2.x.
As far as I can tell, I'm running the latest code (downloaded 2 days ago) and everything else is working as expected.
Is it possible I have something mis-configured in Apache, or did I miss something during the installation process?

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

I've tested this locally in IE9 and am able to see the context menu. Is it possible to share a link to your installation?

The context menu is JS only and so should work no matter your server setup.

I have created a sandbox project and user on my system that you can work with.
If you need more access to the system (either as an admin on Chili, or access to the chili user on the Linux box) please contact me directly and I will make it happen.

The userid and password for the sandbox user is "sandbox"/"sandbox".

Here is a link to the issues list for the sandbox project:

This appears to have been a problem with plugins on some of my machines. On freshly installed machines, this is working fine.
Closing the issue.
