.is(":hidden") on a list with 'display:inline' always true in Chrome and Safari

Using .is() to check visibility of a list (<ul>) with a display of 'inline' seems to always believe an element is invisible in the latest Chrome and Safari. Note that .toggle() uses is(":hidden"), so .toggle() is not working for this case, either.

I've created a simple example that illustrates the problem when used in Safari or Chrome (Windows or Mac).

        <style type="text/css">
            .theList {
                display: inline;
        <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            $(document).ready(function () {
                var theList = $(".theList");
                $(".showHideButton").click(function () {
                    if (theList.is(":hidden")) {
                    } else {

        <input type="button" class="showHideButton" value="Toggle the message" />
        <ul class="theList">
