the input field in your testcase should have the name "blah", not name.

Right, I'll close for now.

Reopen this if you modify the test case and it still fails.

Guys, thank you for the awesome library!

This specific bug hits me big time and as I deal with the code form other developers, which I have limited access to, it makes it worse.

See the attached bug file - it works without the form, while failing with the form. The query has nothing to do with the form! In my case, the form is someone else's code!

The way to debug the problem is the following (my page is huge, so can not do it by breakpoints):

In jquery-1.2.6.js, after the following text at lines 1709 - 1711:

  if ( z == null || /href|src|selected/.test(m[2]) )
    z = jQuery.attr(a,m[2]) || '';

Insert the debug catcher:

  if (z !== z.toString()) {
    z = z.toString();

Then, in the FireFox console, look for the elements $('.bug3167')

By the way, just brutally adding the line

  z = z.toString();

, instead of the debug catcher after line 1711, saves it from aborting on 1717 (now 1718). Now, I think it is OK in my environment, but getting a proper fix would make me much more willing to release the code to production.

Yes, I think I saw this on another ticket. I pulled out the perfect solution, but it hits perfomance. Will handle this once I get a while.

I have mentioned this bug in the 1.3b1 bug #3753. Both bugs work off of the same test case but address different problems.

Test case does not throw an error with 1.3 or 1.4.
