Make the context parameter behave more consistently

Currently the three following syntax do not result in the same context parameter:

$("div", document.getElementById("myId")); $("div", $("#myId")); $("div", "#myId");

Only the first one result in the context property to be properly set. The attached patch fix this issue. See related thread:  http://groups.google.com/group/jquery-dev/browse_thread/thread/b8c414b373163895

This patch has gone stale since now the user can pass in a plain object full of attributes. I'm not convinced it's necessary anyway.
