wrap() methods lose events

Reported by: rodnaph Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: core Version: 1.4a1
Keywords: clone wrap events Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When using the wrap() method, events I have added to the element are lost (because wrap() uses clone() which doesn't preserve events). Shouldn't jQuery actually preserve events on elements? (or atleast provide the option to preserve them without having to rely on a plugin?)


$( 'img' ).wrap(

$( '<a></a>' )

.click( doSomething )

Actually, I seem to have an even worse problem.

var jq = $(elem);
var div = $('<div></div>');
jq.wrap(div); () {

I click the DIV - nothing happens. So it seems that whenever I use wrap() on a JQuery object, I can't bind any events to it whatsoever. Tested in Firefox 3.0.1 on Windows XP.

Please, fix this issue. It's just about adding true as parameter of the clone function called from wrapAll function.
