This change fixes the problem for the Webkit browsers but breaks badly in all IE versions as IE doesn't adhere to the specification of getAttribute and returns a boolean value for attributes where the value evaluates to a boolean value (as disabled, checked) instead of a string.

Check this site for more info. This is why originally I wanted to add to my previous note the warning that using getAttribute is risky as it is so broken across browsers

Actually just committed a fix for this (was looking into it more after my last commit): 97d468f Just noticed your comment here but I came to the same conclusion.

(!option.parentNode.disabled || !jQuery.nodeName( option.parentNode, "optgroup" )) ) {
// Get the specific value for the option
value = jQuery(option).val();
