find does not work with two sets of brackets in attribute selector

Reported by: bradcupit Owned by: john
Priority: low Milestone: 1.4.4
Component: selector Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: find bracket brackets attribute selector Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

escaping does not solve the problem. The workaround it to use the jQuery method rather than the find method.

See attached test case.
