IE8 drag'n'drop events broken when using live(). Works when using bind().

IE8 doesn't throw "dragend" events when using live() as the other browsers. It does work when using bind() though.

IE8 doesn't allow drops when using live() on the drop target, the other browsers do. It does work when using bind() though.

See test case.

FYI this seems to work in IE9 preview 4.

I'm guessing that this is a bubbling issue, much like submit, focus, etc... I'll add this as low priority for now, I think, since these weren't spec'd events until very recently. But I think it would be nice to figure out how to bubble them. I know jdalton has done quite a bit of 'make ie bubble' work. I'll check with him to see if he has any insight.

Yeah, I don't think that this is something that we're going to fix. If someone comes up with an easy patch then we could consider it.
