Thanks for submitting a ticket to the jQuery project!. Due to limited resources, we're only able to maintain a single version of jQuery in active development at any one time. As a result of this we are unable to make fixes available for old releases outside of our main release cycle, but as you mention, jQuery 1.6 now resolves the behaviour you've mentioned. We strongly recommend using 1.6.x rather than 1.4.4 in this instance.

It should be noted that IE<9 won't even let you "change" the type attribute after an input element has been created.
