Webkit: find with colon ":" in search returns incorrect results

When attempting to parse the Yahoo Weather RSS feeds using JQuery 1.2.6, I'm unable to correctly grab an element with a colon in its name. This line works correctly in Firefox and IE, but in Chrome and Safari returns an empty array:

var temp = $(result.data).find("yweather

Changing the find parameter to "condition" causes it to work correctly in Chrome and Safari, but then doesn't work for Firefox and IE.

This originally happened with use of JQuery 1.2.6, but I also tested it on 1.3.2 with the same results.

An example RSS page can be found here: http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?p=17019&u=f

The tag that I'm trying to get looks like this: <yweather:condition text="Fair" code="34" temp="61" date="Mon, 01 Jun 2009 9:56 am EDT" />

This applies to any xml with a namespace. I'd think it should be higher priority.
