#11580 closed bug (invalid)

unbind with added spaces unbinds everything, not just the namespaced events.

Test code:


$(window).bind('click', function () {



$(window).bind('click.test1', function () {

console.log('test ns 1')


$(window).bind('click.test2', function () {

console.log('test ns 2')


$(window).unbind('click.test1 click.test2');

You'd expect this to still console log 'test' but it doesn't, because there's an extra space in the unbind. This worked in jQuery 1.6

Even though it worked in 1.6 doesn't necessarily mean it's an regression.

.on() docs:

One or more space-separated event types...

This usually means one space separator. I can't think of any reason you'd want to use more than one space.
