Hmm, I might be missing something, but I don't see any problem with selectors having bogus pseudoclasses (see the attached screenshot). Can you double-check the latest WebKit/Chromium tip of tree or elaborate on the issue if it is there? I'm running Chromium tip of tree (22.0.1221.0 (Developer Build 148931))

You're right, the problem seems to be fixed now. Thanks for looking into it!

We're seeing this bug with every person on our team (classes not displaying in Developer Tools), but haven't been able to narrow it down to pseudo-selectors.

I am also having the same problem, where classes are not displaying in dev tools. Likewise, I have not been able to narrow it down.

Reopening. A publicly available test case (not necessarily reduced, but of course that would be a good thing to have) would help much in diagnosing/reproducing the problem, though.
I fixed a similar issue upstream last week. Is that it? Fix should be there
on Canary.

Closing per pfeldman's comment to reduce the bug noise. Please reopen if you find a situation where it breaks for you.
