attr(attrName, newAttrValue) fails on object which has child with name=attrName

Reported by: soswow Owned by: flesler
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: core Version: 1.4a1

Sorry, if dublicate, but its strange, that this is not fixed since old versions.

Bug is:

When I have form with some inputs with name=action for example, I cant change "action" attribute of this form with "attr" method! As I finded out I cant change any attribute of form when there is same named control inside form.

I don't know what about other attributes of other element if there is control with same name inside it.

This bug applyes only to FF (3 at least) and IE (6 and 7 tested)

Safary and Chrome works well.

IE even throw exception in described situation.

A attaching HTML with working example of the bug.

You can test it various browsers and You will get different results.

Because you can access form fields via form[fieldName], when the code tried to set the attribute via form[name]=value, it wouldn't work. This was correctly handled when getting form attributes but wasn't handled correctly in setting.

The problem wasn't actually solved, still fails in IE, I backed out the commit.

Isn't this bug a duplicate of #3113 (or the other way around, this one is slightly more general, there's also #1169)?

Also, why comment out the failing test, rather than leave it as a todo mark?

We are rewriting .attr in 1.5 and hopefully can get this dealt with then.
