Thanks for taking the time to help out the jQuery project by filing a ticket! We require that all bugs have a test case on jsFiddle in order for us to confirm and work with the behaviour you're experiencing. Please make sure to test against the latest GIT 0 version as well.
Also...are you sure you tested this against 1.4.4? I actually discovered this bug 6 months ago, and filed a pull request and the fix was landed for jQuery 1.4.3. I just made a fiddle showing that the bug is indeed fixed in 1.4.4: http://jsfiddle.net/c8MRL/ So I am going to close this as a dupe of the original, now-fixed issue.
If you have a test that demonstrates this behaviour still exists in the latest jQuery, please do share it with us! Thanks again!
