Background image disappears on IE8 with jQuery 1.6.1

On Internet Explorer 8 the following simple snippet doesn't work (sorry, I can't post on jsFiddle since there's no 1.6.1 version):

<style type="text/css">
body { background:url( repeat-x; }

The background image flashes a moment, then disappears

No problem with 1.6.0 version

Duplicate of #9239.

In my opinion, either this bug should be reopened or the one it's considered a duplicate for should be, as the problem still exists in IE8.

This should be re-opened as it is still a problem in 1.6.1.

As soon as the script tag is added to the page the background only flashes for a moment in IE8. IE6-7 is fine (as are the other browsers), but having to add the meta tag for compatibility view is a pain.

Update to 1.6.2 and if it can be reproduced on, please create a new ticket with a test case. Thanks!
