Thanks for submitting a ticket to the jQuery Project!. I've recreated your test case here:, but haven't been able to reproduce the issue you're experiencing. Could you confirm which browser/version/platform you're seeing it on?

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!
