Well, in case it helps the next person: WordCycle still had display errors in IE8, as of Aug 1, 2011.
The fix that worked for my website comes to this mini-plugin from the bbpress.com forum.

Put this in your functions.php:

function fix_ie8() {
if (strpos($_SERVER,”MSIE 8″)) {header(“X-UA-Compatible: IE=7”);}}
add_action(‘bb_send_headers’,’fix_ie8′); // for bbPress
add_action(‘send_headers’,’fix_ie8′); // for WordPress

This sends a header just to IE8 users and makes it function like ie7 for your site.
