$.each() doesn't work in IE 7 when there are dots in index names

This causes:

'''Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'length' is null or not an object


in line 605 in jQuery 1.5.2 development.

The code causing the error is

$.each(, function(index, value) { 
  if (index == "scs.sid") dbMap[value] = keys.slice();

I suspect that the problem is that the key contains a dot. This is something IE 7 has problems with.
