"change" events misbehavior with <select multiple="multiple"> and ie6

I have found a problem with <select multiple="multiple"> and .change() under ie6. The problem is ie6 fires first change event right after any other event, like selecting again, clicking mouse, pressing a key etc. It is perfectly seen on Just click any option in demo, nothing will happen.

If i put a handler using plain DOM, i.e. $("select").get(0).onchange = function() { ... } the problem dissapears. So, it's definitely a bug with jquery.

I can confirm this happening on IE 6 using jQuery 1.4.2

Actually, no live-events of type "change" get fired on select-elements.

"Click" events work, so do "change"-events when I bind them (i.e. not using 'live').

Same issue here. Is jquery part of the "dump IE6" movement?

I can confirm that the demo at does not work properly.

The data retrieved from the form control always appears to be from the state *before* the change event occurred.

Unfortunately, we can't fix this bug. It's specific to IE6 and doesn't affect IE7/8.
