JSONP detection too aggressive? #903

In the ajax module there is a test that determine if a request is a JSONP and if so uses JSONP to do the request.

var dataType = settings.dataType, hasPlaceholder = /=\?/.test(settings.url)
if (dataType == 'jsonp' || hasPlaceholder) {
   <return ajaxJSONP>

Problem is my url contains the pattern but should be a regular ajax request with xml datatype. At least for me this broke compability with jQuery which we were using before.

Thanks for reporting. How did your URL come up to have the literal characters =? in it?

The path contains a base64 encoded value, combined with cache: false this generates a url that is similar to this:

Got it, thanks. Now I can see how this happened. I'll try to patch this soon
