text method returns a bullet in IE11 RTM when used on a LI element more than one time

This is an IE11 bug, but also affects jQuery, so I'm adding it here for a possible workaround in the library.

When textContent property is used more than once on a LI element, a bullet character is prepended to the text. This affects the text method, which also returns the bullet. innerText and outerText don't exhibit similar problems and may be used as a workaround.

Test case with textContent:

Test case with jQuery text method:

The actual element accessed doesn't matter.

Let's hope it gets fixed soon, and I think it will. Any internal fix on our part would be pretty complex.
