   <div id="id_div"></div>
    jQuery('#id_div').parent().find('a').live('click', function() { alert('Click'); });

And after click on link you will receive error "Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: )"

If change live to click everything works fine

.live() docs:

Chaining methods is not supported. For example, $("a").find(".offsite, .external").live( ... ); is not valid and does not work as expected.
