Still happens in 1.3.2. This is the offending code in jquery.1.3.2.js:

Fix target property, if necessary

if ( ! ) = event.srcElement || document; Fixes #1925 where srcElement might not be defined either

This happens if JQuery has been included in a page (even if no functions are called at all) and a link to a PDF file is opened which loads in the same window (thus unloading the current page) using the Adobe plugin. Happens in IE7 and IE8 (others not tested).

Unfortunately I don't think that this is something that can be reasonably fixed on our end - all we're doing is accessing a (very sane) event property. It doesn't seem like it would matter if we wrapped it in a try/catch or anything else, it's more that the page is still existing in memory while the PDF is being loaded, causing problems.

If there are any specific fixes for the issue please let me know.
