$(childWindow).unload registers an unload handler for the owner window

Registering an unload handler on a child window doesn't work.

The handler instead is attached to the parent window.

<!doctype html>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://jqueryjs.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.3.2.js"></script>
            function onclick() {
                var childWindow = window.open('about:blank');
                $(childWindow).unload(function() {alert('child window closed');});

        <a href="javascript:onclick();">click</a>

Reopening this--I can confirm that the fix in #4628 does not fix this issue.
