.attr("checked","") is setting value to checked

A blank string (or any string) is setting the value of the checkbox to checked. This seems to be a change in behavior from 1.5.2. Setting the value to false will correct the issue.

We no longer remove the attribute when an empty string is provided as that can be a valid use case for multiple boolean attributes, which leaves them as true in multiple browsers. To set to false, use .attr('checked', false) or preferably .removeAttr('checked').
