jQuery 1.4.4 selects all classes with the name share_posts when asked to select class name .share

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced test case on  http://jsFiddle.net that reproduces the issue experienced to help us assess your ticket! Additionally, test against the jQuery (edge) version to ensure the issue still exists.

I've created a test case based on the code you supplied here:  http://jsfiddle.net/addyosmani/HT57m/ however using jQuery 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 there are no issues with class selectors (or .length) resulting in the behavior you've mentioned in your ticket. I also can't reproduce the behavior mentioned using jQuery 1.4.4. Closing as we can't reproduce but please feel free to check your markup to ensure there isn't any other code affecting what you're doing.
