serialize() and val() returns the option title for <select> fields in Konqueror 3 and 4

When running $(form).serialize(), the <select> fields are not processed correctly. Instead of returning the value of the field, the title of the current option is returned.

This happens both in Konqueror 3 and 4.

When reading the value with the normal DOM API (select.value or select.options[ select.selectedIndex ].value) the proper value does get returned.

If this issue is also caused by a bug in Konqueror, I'd like to report this to too.

Digged a little deeper, it turns out the .specified field does not exist in Konqueror. This causes the following line to fail:

return (elem.attributes.value || {}).specified ? elem.value : elem.text;

Bug for Konqueror is reported here:

I guess the fix for jQuery would be testing for .specified !== false...?

Happens in Nokia browsers as well. Confirmed in N95 and E90.
