jQuery selectors not working for <param> element inside <object> element in IE < 9

Discovered today that in any version of IE prior to 9 jQuery isn't correctly getting child <param> elements for an <object> element.

As can be seen in this JSFiddle:

Also even using find() isn't working. If you have multiple <object> elements with multiple <param>'s in each and you loop through the objects getting the parameters for each it instead finds every parameter on the page. You can see this in:

In IE8 it is returning 0 for the lengths of all the first 4 console.log's and 5 for the last two.

This fiddle appears to be working correctly in all modern browsers, IE8 and below are all broken.
