IE 8/9 crashes with simple css

A combination of a filter-gradient and text-transform specified on a :filter-letter pseudo selector crashes the IE8/9 reproducable

.trwurst {
   filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#f8f5ed', endColorstr='#e8e5db',GradientType=0);

.trwurst:first-letter {
   text-transform: uppercase;

applied on a simple html element:

   <div class="trwurst">hi</div>

causes Internet Explorer 8/9 to crash


I can only guess here. I think it's kind of a redraw loop. The gradient gets drawn, the first letter uppercased, which invalidates the background... etc.
