XMLHttpRequest's getResponseHeader and getAllResponseHeaders is blank

When I attempt to read the XMLHttpRequest's headers on ajaxError, neither getResponseHeader nor getAllResponseHeaders does anything.

What I expect to get is... anything really.

Firefox is blank, IE7 and Safari fail to do anything.

Attached is a simple example in php.

I also tested by using


url: "someurl",

error: function(e, xhr, opt, te)






var xhr = $.ajax({

url: "someurl",

error: function(e, x, opt, te)





and I went on another computer too and it also failed.

This is not a bug, the function parameters are just in the wrong order.

error (XMLHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown)

Right, the e parameter doesn't belong there.
