It works in 1.6.4 but breaks in 1.7 unless I remove "mouseout" event.

Can you tell me why the mouseout is there? I don't think it should be.

Good question - think it was out of (bad) habit! However it is interesting that it doesn't work in 1.7 whilst it worked in 1.6.4. Replacing "focus" with "mouseover" - http://jsfiddle.net/9Va8V/3/ - made it all work again. Could it be that it was a bug in 1.6.4 but "fixed" in 1.7? I am unable to find anything regarding mouseout in the bug tracker.

Perhaps worth adding a note in the documentation about mouseout needing mouseover?

There was a bug in pre-1.7 versions where mouseover/mouseenter and mouseout/mousleave could interfere with each other when attached to the same event, depending on the order where the events were attached. I can't find the ticket atm but I remember fixing it. This code may have been trying to work around that bug. However, I think the correct code should not have mouseout there since it will fire when the pointer leaves the li into the a.
