This behavior is not Telerik related, but rather specific to IE - you won't observe the same on other browsers. Nevertheless, you can use the following approach to achieve your requirement:
sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
GridPagerItem pager = e.Item
RadComboBox combo = pager.FindControl(
Hope this helps. Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
