incorrect browser version (1.2.3, not fixed)

my browser (IE7 under Vista Ultimate) introduces himself as:

navigator Agent:Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; FDM)

(notice the second occurance of compatible; MSIE 6.0)

core jQuery, when getting browser version gets the second one, which is wrong...

changing line 1217 of full distribution ( 1216 line of core.js ) from:

version: (userAgent.match( /.+(?:rv|it|ra|ie)[\\/: ]([\\d.]+)/ ) || [])[1],


version: (userAgent.match( /.+?(?:rv|it|ra|ie)[\\/: ]([\\d.]+)/ ) || [])[1],

fixes this problem, but I haven't tested it on other browsers and configurations yet. It works in my case... the difference is in question mark after plus - which finds shortest matching string, so the re gets the first occurance of MSIE 7.0.

#1537 is a duplicate of this bug, the given regexp should fix that one as well.

Tickets #3696, #3402, #2661, and #2413 are all related, but for different user-agents.
