ie10 imagebutton _dopostback undefined bug with update panel script manager

IE10 has a nice new little bug which occurs with image buttons on 2nd or consecutive postback on a page which contains an update panel.

You will notice the bug as a broad javascript error message, but behind the scenes the issue occurs due to a bad type conversion to an integer from a floating point which has started to return from the .Net functions.

The official fix is a patch from Microsoft for your server, however, in the meantime you can simply apply the following in your global.asax.

Scott Hanselman has suggested a few things regarding this issue, but I think you will find the solution below to be more straightforward in the short term.
