.add method in IE breaks when pass an HTMLCollection

When form.elements is passed to .add() in IE it has a a nodeType of 1, so add() treats it as a single DOM element not a collection of DOM elements. When it treats it as a single DOM element .add() wraps the collection in an array. The end result is an array containng one item which is an array like object (HTMLCollection). See it in action, http://jsfiddle.net/w7qNc/2/.

Minor correction, IE8. I haven't tested earlier versions of IE. IE9 seems to be OK.

Support for array-like handling of form.elements was dropped last year for lack of a reliable way to differentiate it from form. See #6867 & #2114.
