When I try to use 1.0.3, I get a javascript error because of the following line:

1015: = event.srcElement;

The error I get (only in IE, which is consistent with the above since line 1015 is in the if (jQuery.browser.msie) block). The above line is not in 1.0.2, which works just fine for me.

The error IE complains about is:

‘null’ is null or not an object


I've got that bug in IE, same line, and realized it was related to an $.ajax() call that i had implemented.

1.0.2 works fine for me too.

Dunno why it occurs at an ajax call, but I guess checking if srcElement is available should help.

Which IE version are you using?

hi, i've tested it in IE 6 and 7, both got the same error.

Thanks for following up on this, pac. It was a call to $.ajax that seemed to trigger it for me, as well.
