.live() + .trigger("change") throws a run time error

I have an element which is not added to the DOM. An event handler has been attached via .live(). The element dispatches a change event via trigger() and I get the following error ...

<DocumentFragment> has no method getAttribute.

Sample source code ...



<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>


$(document).ready(function() {

jQuery("[groupId='hobbies']").live("change", myHandler);

var $checkbox = $("<input type='checkbox' groupId='hobbies'/>");



function myHandler() {







NOTE: I do not get an error If this checkbox was appended to the DOM.
