jQuery(html) returns 2 objects (html+script) if script is included

Reported by: zoglair Owned by: zoglair

Dear all,

Let me start by telling you that I've recently switched from 1.3.2 where I had no problems. So, I am uncertain if what I've found was introduced in 1.4.2 or in a version between.

My CMS/framework handles (popup) windows of various types via ajax calls. The server returns html which I handle via the $win = $(response) syntax. Now, if there is a <script> snippet included in the html, then $win becomes an array of 2 objects (one with the html, and the other with the script). Version 1.3.2 always returns 1 object.

This basically brakes my framework. I've spent almost a couple of days trying to nail it down.

I would like to know if this is the intended behaviour from now on, and I need to change everything, or it is something that is going to be changed again in the near future.

I am working in FF 3.5.8, if it makes any difference...

Thank you in advance for your attention!

Please, allow me to be more specific on the above issue:

var $win  = $(html);
var $form = $win.find('form:first');

if ($form.length)
        var data = $form.serialize();

In 1.3.2, $win.length=1, I get 1 form and data contains 1 set of key/value pairs. In 1.4.2, $win.length=2, I get 2 forms by 'form:first' and data contains 2 sets (keys are doubled). Unfortunately, after an error submission I - somehow - end up with different values and I cannot differentiate between them.

Thank you very much for your attention!

Unfortunately nothing is changed in 1.4.3, according to this issue. If i am not mistaken, this is also reflected in the source code under the comment HANDLE: $(html) -> $(array) where 1.4.3 and 1.4.2 are the same, while 1.3.2 is way different.
