.not() method not functioning as expected.

Given the following HTML:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
        <script src="jquery.js"></script>
        <div id="document">
            <ul class="menu">
                <li><a href="">Menu Link</a></li>
                <li><a href="">Menu Link</a></li>
                <li><a href="">Menu Link</a></li>
        <p><a href="">Paragraph Link</a></p>
        <p><a href="">Paragraph Link</a></p>
        <p><a href="">Paragraph Link</a></p>

The following two statement should yield identical selection results:

$("#document a").not(".menu a");
$("#document a").not($(".menu a"));

However, the first statement returns all 6 <a> elements, while the second (properly) only returns the bottom 3.

It looks like I may be mistaken about whether this is not functioning correctly.

Yeah this was explained very well on the mailing list ... closing out as invalid.
