I'm trying to use the unload event handler with jQuery, but it's not working.

There's no error, but it doesn't fire up.

This is my code:

After some investigation, it turns out that this is a bug in compat-1.0 compatibility plugin.

As it's trying to support the old "un"+event shortcuts, and by doing that it was overriding the unload event when it creates the shortcut for the load event ("un"+"load").

Patch attached above, which fixes this problem. But it would mean that the "un"+"load" shortcut is not available.

This is correct - or, at least, this is how it behaved in jQuery 1.0.* - so the API is compatible. It's obvious that it's a problem, which is why the API was changed in the first place :-)
