Opera 9.64 problem with BT Speedtest

Could other users of Opera 9.64 (Win or Linux)  please try to access http://www.speedtester.bt.com using default site-settings.
If I try to open this site identified as Opera, I just get a blank screen; If I open it identified as Firefox, it seems to work.
Something's changed since I upgraded from 9.27 and I'd like to know if others are experiencing the same before I post it as a problem on the Opera forums
thanks
Paul
