jQuery 1.5.1 is placing target variable into the global namespace

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: anonymous
Priority: undecided Milestone:
Component: global Version: 1.5.1

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. Please provide a test case on so that we can review the issue further.

_comment0: Fixes #8722. Remove try/catch used by #3533 to fix the IE Table Colon Blow bug, and instead check for colon in the event name. Thanks to daguej for scoping this out -- a colonoscopy you might say. \ Changeset: 98d83ef85f41fefb40a14eec24c6804c088bbeeb1302269272984364

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.
