Please close this ticket. False alarm. I made a mistake when constructing my minimal test case and I'm not able to repro outside of a much more complex app. I suspect it's something to do with Firebug. Sorry.

Closing ticket as original ticket submitter has updated to say that this is not an issue with jQuery but was rather one more likely to do with Firebug. If the issue is re-experienced, please feel free to submit a new ticket and we will investigate accordingly.
