Bug Description

wordpress depends on libjs-jquery. On Natty, this provides Jquery 1.5.x - however, wordpress 3.0.5 only supports jquery 1.4.4.

As a result, various admin UI elements do not function correctly: notably, the image upload (both flash and non-flash) will not work correctly.

As a workaround, diverting the jquery.js symlink and installing a static copy of Jquery 1.4.4 restores the correct functionality.

I just ran into this. It basically breaks almost all of the admin UI.
