$(E ~ F) fails if E is the first sibling

I am having a problem with the "element preceded by" syntax for $.


$(document).ready(function() {
  $("div ~ span").background("red");

<body> <div> this is a div </div>
<span> this is a span </span> </body>

This does not turn the <span> to red. If I use "+" instead of "~", then the <span> turns red. The relevant code (lines 1653-1655 in jquery.js, rev 557), says:

  if ( s.n > 0 )
    for ( var i = s.n; i < s.length; i++ )
      r.push( s[i] );

I haven't tested this, but I would eliminate the s.n > 0 check and

I would start the iteration at s.n+1:

  for ( var i = s.n+1; i < s.length; i++ )
    r.push( s[i] );
