$.merge() doesn't remove all dupes in 1.1.3

Description

I frequently use $.merge to remove duplicate elements in arrays. Before upgrading to 1.1.3, this worked perfectly on my URIencoded strings. Now it misses most (but not all) of the duplicates, and I get arrays with numerous consecutive duplicates values, as well as scattered ones. Example: $.merge(this.optionItems, this.searchObj.targets[i][plugin.field].split(","));

Returning the result of $.merge into the target array (this.optionItems) makes no difference.

When I switched my jQuery back to 1.1.2, it worked with no problems.

@Raze: This is correct. In 1.1.3 we switched to a two method system. $.merge() combines arrays (that is it, doesn't remove duplicates) and $.unique() removed duplicates. We found this to be much faster, since you could merge many arrays then do a single unique operation on them. Hope this helps!
