Error in methods .height() and .width()

Hi! Browsers Google Chrome 23 and Firefox 18.

Body of html-document consists of one block, he has next css property:

div#content {

width: 240px; height: 240px;

margin: 3%; padding: 0px;


I update width and height of this div, when window is resizing.

I do it (I cut unnecessary code):

$(window).bind('load resize',function() {




$(this).height() return incorrect value, when height of my screen is very small (0-200px) and when this construction is inside .bind() (!). But when method .height() is used outside .bind(), he returns correct value.

In jQuery 1.7.2 this method always returns correct value.

PS Please, also verify method .width(). But I don't have problem with this method.

Sorry but I do not understand what bug the example is trying to demonstrate. Can you change it to say what you expected and how the result is incorrect?
