jQuery 1.5.1 is placing target variable into the global namespace

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: anonymous
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.next
Component: global Version: 1.5.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


The jQuery 1.5.1 library is placing an internal variable called target into the global namespace. I tested jQuery 1.4.1 and the same issue cannot be found. If the target variable is changed this can interrupt the internal workings of jQuery.

Thank you for submitting a bug report to the jQuery project! I checked all globals on a page with jQuery 1.5.2 and was unable to reproduce your issue. http://i.imgur.com/87DxC.png Please provide a test case on http://jsfiddle.net so that we can review the issue further.

As per timmywil, I too was unable to reproduce this after going through the globals in 1.5.2. Please feel free to re-open if you can provide a test case that reproduces the issue.
