Summary: get event attribute as a function
An element with event attribute should return the handler as a function. Current behavior returns the handler as a string. In my case, form element has an onchange attribute. While trying to trigger the attribute, I get the DOM element, get the onchange property and try to apply the property since I am expecting it to be a function. This problem was originally found with jQuery 1.6.1 (Also hit it on jQuery 1.7.1), when attempting to trigger the change event for a select box child of a form element.
