live with context in jquery nightly

You have added support for live with a different context than document (see here:, but the fix is not complete yet. If a parent element of the choosen context also matches the given selector-string, the live event will also fire.

I have added two patches for this.

Good catch.

This has made me think that closest should be restricted to not traverse higher than the current jQuery context anyway - I attached a patch for this. And maybe the same should apply for other upward traversals too, ie. parent/parents.

Ah, I've just discovered this is not such a good idea. As jQuery doesn't accept an element as selector and context, so the following wouldn't work:

$(, context).closest('.something')

Ok, ignore my patch! I'd remove it but can't find a way to in trac!

It looks like this was landed as part of the recent live commits.
