jQuery stalls if heavy asynchronous request traffic happens

Reported by: Frankie Owned by: john
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.2
Component: event Version: 1.2.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


IE 6/7 only so far.

Site has jQuery 1.2.1 being loaded after three other libs (clean libs /w own namespace) in index.html

<body> onload starts call into the other libs, these libs then start heavy asynchronous request traffic + script and link tag insertion into head.

jQuery doesn´t seem to like this in IE and stalls at a certain point.

If the site stalls, "view sourcecode" reveals nothing but:

<script id=__ie_init defer=true src=//:></script>

Problem seems to be related to asynchronous traffic, but can´t be tracked. Is there a timeout function in jQ that tries to jump in when heavy traffic prevents execution?

Test case can be provided, but needs to be scheduled... skype: frank.thuerigen or email for further info (not that there is a lot more I can provide...)

This may be fixed with the new document ready code for IE since jQuery currently doesn't use the script defer trick.

Yes, this has been resolved in 1.2.2.
