jquery 1.4 with compact-1.3 have some issue about multi-selector

When I used the jquery 1.4 and jquery-compact-1.3 (http://github.com/jquery/jquery-compat-1.3). I found:

$('#div-a, #div-b').click(function() { alert('foo'); }

The multi-selector cannot work correctly.

I check the jquery-compact-1.3, line 125-138,

jQuery() now returns an empty jQuery set, not jQuery(document)

var oldinit = jQuery.fn.init;

jQuery.fn.init = function( selector ) {

if ( selector === undefined ) {

return jQuery( document );


oldinit.apply( this, arguments ); return this;


jQuery.fn.init.prototype = oldinit.prototype;

There is the reason why multi-selector cannot work, but I have no idea how to fix it?

The reason why your original code wasn't executing correctly is that you forgot to add in the final ')' at the very end of your code. Here's a live test case http://jsfiddle.net/addyosmani/ZkfBk/ where you can see this working fine with jQuery 1.4.3. It also works fine with 1.4.2, 1.3.2 and 1.2.6.
