Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket. Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

Please be sure your test case is *minimal*, without any additional libraries except jQuery core. If you need more help isolating the problem, please ask for help on the forum.
