error in IE if doing reverse ajax without activex enabled

Description

A regression in engine.js causes IE to throw an exception (and abort) when performing a poll without ActiveX enabled. The cause is the "htmlfile" construction
if (batch.isPoll && window.ActiveXObject) {
batch.htmlfile = new window.ActiveXObject("htmlfile");
that will throw an automation exception if ActiveX not enabled.

Joe:
As the htmlfile code has been sort of experimental, what do you think about just commenting it out until we can fix it properly?
I can fix this for 2.0.4.

I didn't read you comment properly, and I've just deleted the lines, and checked it in.
Thanks for finding that something was wrong.
