I am not 100% sure of the correct behavior here as this is from a bug

it looks like the behavior is wrong. It appears to never indicate an ID 
if an input element is passed in regardless of the attribute name.

My eyes are a bit buggy from all the parenthesis, but I believe this 
patch correctly fixes the behavior:
- if att name is "id" then its an ID
- if att name is "name" then its an ID if no element passed in or the 
element name is not "input".

I don't know if an element is required here or not, but previously to 
the change in 1.174 there was no element check so I am assuming it is 
not required.

  Fine by me,
