Ticket #2337 (closed bug: invalid)
jQuery(selector, context) don't work with unbound nodes
|Reported by:||ieure||Owned by:|
If you pass an array of jQuery selection of un-bound (i.e. not present in the page's DOM) nodes, selectors don't work at all.
Looks like a long-standing bug, I can reproduce it in 1.1.4 and 1.2.3.
