<script src=""></script>
$(function() {
    $('.c1').not('.c2').live('click', function() { //<== .bind() works

<div class="c1">c1</div><br />
<div class="c1 c2">c1 c2</div><br /><br />

First div must show alert on click.

It doesn't work with live but works with bind.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug ticket and providing a testcase!

This isn't a bug. As the documentation for live states in the "Caveats" section

DOM traversal methods, or a context argument to the jQuery() method, are not supported for finding elements to send to .live().
