Selector bug: strange interaction between > and :visible

Reported by: mikecapp Owned by:

Component: selector Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


jQuery doesn't find a match for the selector "#outer > div:visible span" when the actual DOM path is: (#outer > div > div > span); it looks as though it's erroneously applying the child test to the second, inner div. There's nothing invisible anywhere in this fiddle, but the :visible is definitely needed to trigger the issue.

From right to left, the limits the checkSet to the first visible div (the parent of the span), then verifies that #outer is the div's direct parent, which it is not. I'm not sure of a solution yet. Stopping on the first match is usually correct and helps the performance of all descendent selectors.
