#13797 closed bug (fixed)

jQuery.fn.is returns incorrect result if used to check $(this) or $(e.currentTarget) and a positional pseudoselector is used

This fiddle is the most reduced that shows the error: http://jsfiddle.net/garnwraly/sfrwU/21/

This fiddle shows why :first-child isn't suitable sometimes: http://jsfiddle.net/garnwraly/sfrwU/26/

This fiddle shows a workaround, apparently it works correctly if you pass a jQuery object into is instead of a selector. http://jsfiddle.net/XAKLP/

problem isolated by ryanbrill to be due to the context being set from document to the element is is being called from.

Can be worked around by writing $(e.currentTarget).parent().is.call(document, 'selector:first') instead of $(e.currentTarget).parent().is('selector:first')

This ticket is now resolved, but I strongly recommend against sending positional selectors to .is. Please consider something with more obvious behavior, like using jQuery( positionalSelector ).is( e.currentTarget ) directly (reversing the context and argument).
