Bind a click handler to a function that submits a form fails with no error in 1.4a1.
If you replace $('#the_form').submit(); with alert('something'); it works fine in both versions, so it seems to be related to submit().
This bug is reproducible in Firefox 3.0.15 on Windows and Linux as well as Chrome for Windows and Linux. The issue is not present in IE6 or IE8. The page works fine when you load it with jQuery 1.3.2. I've attached a test file.
