endless loop in

If you call in a success callback for an earlier you end up in an endless loop. The data provided in each success callback is the same as in the first request.

My example was posting data that was possibly invalid and the succcess callback asked for user validation that they really meant to post the data. If the user confirmed then a new was fired. The success callback for that was immediately called with the same data as in the original request which then asked for user confirmation again. The second jquery request (with user acceptance flag) is sent off but that callback is never fired until the user asks to cancel :)

My workaround was to break the execution thread by calling the second via window.setTimeout

Can you attach a simple test case that demonstrates the problem, or post a link to one on your site?

My apologies, please disregard. Not a jQuery bug.
