event.fix() for keypress() broke detection of Up/Down/etc. keys

Reported by: powerman Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4.3
Component: event Version: 1.4.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

The event.fix() function (line 2746 in jquery-1.3.2) change value of event.which, and thus broke detection of MANY keys.

For example, on keypress() in Opera-10,

key Up return: keyCode=38, charCode=undefined, which=0

key & (Shift+7) return: keyCode=38, charCode=undefined, which=38

So, only way to distinguish Up and & is check event.which value... but jquery's event.fix() make event.which=event.keyCode.

As workaround one may use instead of

Yeah, this seems to be the same as #2338, which was just fixed.
