Safari video tag crash

I have found a bug that is causing Safari to crash.

I am currently running Safari 5.1 with no custom extensions and jQuery 1.6.2 with no other plugins. The following webpage will crash Safari.

		<script src='resources/js/jquery-1.6.2.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
		<script type='text/javascript'>
			var vid_o = $("<video controls style='height:100%;' src='/cms/data/FILM/images/chanel_gardenia_web_1_6097.mp4'></video>");
		<div id='test'>

A few notes:

You will need a video to put in the source tag, it doesn't crash if you don't have one.

If you take out the "controls" option or the style it doesn't crash.

I don't know for sure that it's a jQuery bug; it may be a Safari bug.

I had an opportunity to present this to Eric Carlson (Apple) today at the Open Video Conference and he confirmed this is actually a webkit bug that has been fixed in the nightly builds.

I cannot link to the bug report as it is classified as a limited access report due to it's security/vulnerability status
