jQuery("#IDParent #IDChild") throws error when #IDParent does not exists.

This bug was reproduced using "jQuery-1.1.1" version. I have the following code.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
		<title>Untitled Document</title>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="lib/jquery/jquery-1.1.1.js"></script>
    		jQuery(document).ready(function() {
                jQuery("#IDParent #IDChild").css("background", "red");                                			
          <div id="IDParent">
            <div id="IDChild" class="menuClass">Text</div>

If instead of

          <div id="IDParent">...</div>  

you change the ID to something else (different from id used in the query), for instance:

          <div id="AnotherIDParent">...</div>  

the same query throws the following error at line 954.

 if ( m[1] == "#" && ret[ret.length-1].getElementById ) {

I know that the above query could be fixed this way:

  jQuery("#IDParent").find(#IDChild").css("background", "red"); 

still, it would be nice if the original code would work the same way.

Thank you!
