Last modified May 05, 2011 01:27AM UTC causes infinite loop in Windows Gadgets

I know you guys don't support Windows 7 Gadgets but I thought I would give you a heads up in case this is something you want to document.

I've found calling $(element).append(elements) in code that runs in Windows 7 sidebar gadgets can cause the "clean" function in jQuery core to loop infinitely. The section where it gets stuck in clean is:

        // Resets defaultChecked for any radios and checkboxes
        // about to be appended to the DOM in IE 6/7 (#8060)
        var len;
        if (! {
          if (elem[0] && typeof (len = elem.length) === "number") {
            for (i = 0; i < len; i++) {
          } else {

I was able to fix my problem by adding the following to my script: = true;

Not sure why this works but it fixed my problem.
