Incorrect .is() behavior when checking for attribute with no value

Reported by: alexanderkahn@… Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 1.next
Component: selector Version: 1.4.4
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


Given this markup:

<div data-hi></div> <div data-hi></div>

Running this code:


should return true, since .is() returns true if any member of the collection matches its query. But it returns false.

This is illustrated here:  http://jsfiddle.net/ujP2Y/8/

Note that this bug only happens if the there are multiple elements in the collection matching the attribute query. If just one element has the attribute, .is() works as expected.
