Opera and IE bug (stopObserving)

Reported by loduis (at hotmail) | October 23rd, 2012 @ 04:23 PM

var element = new Element('div');

element.update('Test fire event.');


element.observe('click:first', function (event) {
  console.log('First click ...')
  var element = event.findElement();
  // stop observing next all event
  // this destroy the element of Event.cache
  // but Opera and IE run next handlers berfore
  // stopObserving remove all handler

element.observe('click:second', function (event) {
  console.log('Second click ...');


See Lines:

6719: var cacheEntry = Event.cache[uid];
6729:  var cacheEntry = Event.cache[uid], element = cacheEntry.element;
6744: var cacheEntry = Event.cache[uid], element = cacheEntry.element;

cacheEntry is null because stopObserving remove from cache.
