When cloning an html element, and setting to the "dom" object a property

var div = $("<div />");

div.get(0).aProperty = "aValue";

it is not copied to it's clone.

$("#result").text(div.clone().get(0).aProperty || "undefined");

The bug appears in firefox and safari. In IE6-8 clone() works as expected.

That's correct - and not something that we guarantee. If you wish to copy values like that in a clone I recommend using jQuery's .data() API (which will copy the data values in the clone).
