[name$="value"]-selector gives different results in 1.4.4

Since 1.4.4 the [name$="value"]-selector changed behavior. Try the following code with 1.4.3 and 1.4.4:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
	<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.3.js"></script> 
	<!-- <script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.4.js"></script>  -->
<script type="text/javascript">
  var context = jQuery("div:first").html();
  // - jquery-1.4.3 IE8 (compat mode) => size==1
  // - jquery-1.4.3 IE8 (non compat mode) => size==1
  // - jquery-1.4.3 FF3.6.10 => size==1
  // - jquery-1.4.4 IE8 (non compat mode) => size==0
  // - jquery-1.4.4 IE8 (compat mode) => size==1
  // - jquery-1.4.4 FF3.6.10 => size==0
  alert(jQuery("input[name$=\[test\]]", jQuery(context)).size());

<div><form><input type="checkbox" name="item[0][test]" value="1" /></form></div>

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report.

The documentation for the Attribute Ends With Selector says:

jQuery('[attribute$="value"]') value An attribute value. Quotes are mandatory.

test case shows it's working if you add quotes around \[test\].

But the escaped unquoted selector *should* actually work and this is a known regression. Check the ticket mentioned below for progress on this issue.

There wasn't a 1.4.5 release, was actually 1.5.

There was no 1.4.5 release, was actually 1.5.
