Live event binding not matching selector

Reported by: CarSandwich Owned by:
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: selector Version: 1.5
Keywords: live selector Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When using this selector with the live() it will incorrectly bind to all tr's on a page.

$('#ExampleTable tbody tr:not(:first)').live("dblclick", RowEvent);

I have attached an example of the bug.

It highlights the items the live event should bind to, yet clicking any tr on any table on the page fires the live event.

Seems to work now in 1.4.

Still broken.

Here is the same example in JsFiddle.

Observe the rows are highlighted correctly, however the double click live event is still bound to all tr's on the page.

Eg you can double click any of the cheeses or the first beer, they are not part of the rows filter and should not be bound.

test case

The underlying issue seems to be with the is() check

test case for is()

Triaged as valid, but will need to wait for some Sizzle love.

Note that :first-child does work correctly. I would strongly warn people away from using jQuery positional selector extensions for events.
