Wow, interesting case. And by interesting I mean pain in the ass.

At some point a while back we decided to support things like $("<p>hello</p>").after("<p>world</p>") to get you two paragraphs in the collection. Prior to that I don't recall what it did, probably broke.

I agree though that it seems wrong to have .after() or .before() add stuff to an empty collection. I wonder whose code we'll break by fixing this.

Yes, adding stuff to a primary collection by .after() and .before() is not so useful for chain-style coding.

An another bug posted into could be related to this.
