.done() does not fire when animation has complete callback

I'm not completely sure this is a bug, but it does seem to be an unexpected change in behavior from 1.6.1 to 1.6.2. Here is the test case:

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery-1.6.2.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
      var slideUpAndRemove = function() {
        $(this).slideUp(function() { 
      var box = $("#box"); 
        opacity : 0.0
      }, {
        duration : 2000,
        complete : slideUpAndRemove
      $.when(box).done(function() {

    <div id="box" style="color:white;background-color:green;position:absolute;height:200px;width:200px">This is a test box</div>
    <div>Below the animated box</div>

In 1.6.1, the 'done!' alert box consistently appears. It does not in 1.6.2.

I have tested in FF 5 and Chrome 14 (Ubuntu 10.04).

Here's the test case in jsFiddle:

Toggle between loading the two versions to see the bug occur/not occur.

The issue seems to be related to the fact that the elements are getting removed in the complete callback. This version accomplishes the same thing and works in 1.6.2:

So, like I said, I'm not sure if this counts as a bug but it is a change in behavior. I can live with the second alternative just fine.

Sorry, I seem to have faddled that last fiddle. Here's the alternative I meant to post:
