`scrollParent` context error when use iframe in 1.11.0

I write code to drag element from one document into iframe:

(I use iframe's jquery with parent document context)


var win_preview = document.getElementById('preview-iframe').contentWindow;

win_preview.jQuery('.selector', parent.document).draggable({



It works fine in v1.10.4, but when I update into 1.11.0, I find I can't get the offset. Then I track the bug, find out it caused by the return value in funcion scrollParent:


// 1.10.4

return (/fixed/).test(this.css("position")) || !scrollParent.length ? $(document) : scrollParent;

// 1.11.0

return position === "fixed" || !scrollParent.length ? $( this[ 0 ].ownerDocument || document ) : scrollParent;


the return value is this[ 0 ].ownerDocument in 1.11.0, and it's the iframe context, but I intend the parent document context.

using the owner document is correct. Please provide a reduced test case showing the problem.
