Not that I am very familar with jQuery's history, but the cited code
seems to be pre-Sizzle selector implemention[1], and therefore 1.2.6
should be the last jQuery version with this bug.

I assume Mozilla testsuite means that getElementById on elements are
roughly compatibile with jQuery 1.3+ even if they are actually using
those[2]. That's pretty lucky, I think :) It would still be a good idea
to run the lastest tests in Sizzle with jQuery 1.3 with the
getElementById on elements impmentation to see if there's breakage, but
my guess is no.

[1] The exact change seems to be this one
