Hi! I tried to upgrade from 1.2.6 to 1.3.1 and encountered a bug in selectors.

I make a function that inserts div#par with another child div#chi using .after() function. Then i call $("div#par div#chi").length and get normal value of 1.

Afterwards I call the same function and it inserts div#par1 with child div#chi. But now the call $("div#par div#chi").length returns value of 0. Meanwhile $("div#par div[id=chi]") works fine.

This bug appears at least in 1.3.1 version and under all browsers except Chrome In JQuery branch 1.2.x there is no such bug.

Demo of 1.2.6:

Demo of 1.3.1:

This has to do with the fact that we're using getElementById to find the first matched element on the page - thus we can only find the first element with that ID on the page (and you have multiple elements with the same ID). I recommend generating new, unique, IDs or using [id=NAME].
