jQuery causes flicker with embedded QuickTime movies in Safari

If I try and inject the code necessary to embed a QuickTime movie (either using innerHTML or .html()), jQuery somehow interferes and flickers a copy of the video in the top left corner of the page on Safari. Simply removing jQuery fixes the bug. If I just include the embed code in the HTML, the bug doesn't occur. Here is a test case:

        <script src="jquery-1.3.1.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function() {
    var code = '<embed width="320" height="152" src="http://movies.apple.com/movies/independent/phoebeinwonderland/phoebeinwonderland-clip_h.320.mov" type="video/quicktime" />';
    document.body.innerHTML = code;
        <style type="text/css">
            body { margin: 3em; }

I've just added the padding so that you can see the flicker a little better.

Testing with jQuery 1.4.4 and the latest Safari build I don't see a flicker when testing this. Please see here for your test case Live Test Case. As this cannot be reproduced I am closing as worksforme.
