IE8 reports: 'null' is null or not an object (caused by indexing null as an array)

IE8 reports: 'null' is null or not an object

On line 1919 of jquery-1.4.2.js:

var events =, "events"), handlers = events[ event.type ];

Line 2681 of jquery-1.3.2.js fixes the problem:

handlers = (, "events") || {} )[event.type];


var events =, "events");

if (events!=null) var handlers = events[ event.type ];

The problem turned out to be an old version of Interface elements for jQuery. I've switched to the development version of jQuery UI.
