Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! I've reviewed your test case and was unable to reproduce in Chrome 10, IE7-8, or Firefox 4. http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/rEDqP/5/

Was there a certain browser in which you were experiencing this issue? Please update the test case to reproduce the issue so that we can review further. Additionally, test against the jQuery (edge) version to ensure the issue still exists.

here's a simpler version of the test case. The bug can be reproduced in FF4, Chrome 10, IE9 ...

Oh, event data should be passed as an array: http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/rEDqP/8/.

"Oh, event data should be passed as an array" ... if so, I would expect an JavaScript error or a general misfunction (e.g. undefined data in the event handler) but the code works in general - besides this test case when passing a form element.

Anyway, thanks for clarification.
