IE9 Has attribute selector returning element twice

Using the has attribute selector on IE9 return the same item twice. You can see a jsfiddle reproducing this error here:

On IE9 the alert popups twice while on chrome and firefox only once (as it was supposed to be).

Here is the code for reference to reproduce the bug:

var callCount = 0;

$(function () {

$('[data-myattribute]').each(function () {

alert('call ' + (++callCount).toString());



<form action="">

<div data-myattribute="test" />

Ok I found out that closing div tag is a non-void element must have an end tag. That's why I have the call twice.

You can close this bug as that was the problem and not jQuery.
