Bug Description

In rev 25 on line 1098 I am getting :
"newPosition is undefined" in Firefox and
"undefined is null or not an object" in IE.

using jquery 1.4.2

when i comment out this code, it goes away, and the tool tips seem to be positioned fine.

    // Adjust for border radius
    if( > 0) {
     if(my.x === 'left') { newPosition.left -=; }
     else if(my.x === 'right') { newPosition.left +=; }

     if(my.y === 'top') { -=; }
     else if(my.y === 'bottom') { +=; }

I countered this bug too. It also occurs with jQuery 1.4.1. Here's a patch which fixes the problem; it appears that the author renamed 'newPosition' to 'position' and forgot to update that piece of code.

Here's a test case.

Fixed in rev26 of the 1.x branch.
