.live('click', handler) fires on disabled buttons with child elements in Chrome

It's possible to receive events for a disabled <button> element as well as <input type="button">: (jQuery 1.4.4) (jQuery 1.5)

IE fires click for all of them, passing the button as the target and currentTarget. This was fixed in jQuery 1.5 in

Chrome fires only for the <button> with a child element, passing that as the target. However, currentTarget is set to the button, so changing target.disabled to currentTarget.disabled should extend the fix to include Chrome.

This bug still exists in 1.7.1, per the test case. It does look like changing to currentTarget will solve the problem.

Looks like it regressed in 1.7, probably due to #9393, which moved the liveHandler logic into handle.

Fix #8165: Ignore events bubbling through disabled elements.

Although #6911 fixed the case where was disabled, it missed the case where the target was a sub-element.
