text() method on a document fragment always returns the empty string

The following code used to work in 1.6.x, but no longer does (1.7 or 1.7.1)

See for repro. Just change the jquery version to 1.6 to see that it used to work.

frag = document.createDocumentFragment();
frag.appendChild(document.createTextNode('Always two there are'));
