Description
I found a problem in older IE browsers (pre-IE9) where using a ":eq(n)" selector, where "n" is negative, returns ":eq(0)". This occurs in all jQuery versions except 1.2.6.
Here is a demo of the problem

A simpler reduction: http://jsfiddle.net/rwaldron/TuRNp/3/
Can someone with appropriate browsers test this?
Also, just in case it wasn't clear, if you have one element, 0 is the same as -1

- Status changed from pending to new
In the simpler reduction demo, this also returns true:
$test.eq(null).length === 1 // true
- IGNORE THIS, IT WORKS AS INTENDED! *

Thanks for the clarification, much appreciated.
According to the api docs, eq() accepts only integers: http://api.jquery.com/eq

Hiya.. sorry, I need to clarify. I shouldn't have added in the ".eq()" examples as I forgot about how it treats negative integers. But :eq() acts completely different and does not work with negative integers!
If I use ":eq(n)" in modern browsers, negative integers return null
$test.filter(':eq(-1)') // returns null
In IE8 and older, it returns the element ':eq(0)'.
$test.filter(':eq(-1)') // returns $test.filter(':eq(0)')
Here is a test example to clarify... run it in IE
Oh, I also found that using ".eq(-1)" also messes up, so far, in IE, Firefox and Chrome. I haven't tested the other browsers.
