User Forms 0.2 Javascript Validation not working

Firstly, thanks to all those putting the hard work into the User Defined Forms section of the CMS - great work!

One problem I am having is that the javascript validation does not seem to be working at all when the form is submitted. Server side validation seems to work though, although I haven't tested it thoroughly.

The js error that appears on form submission (using Error Console in Firefox) is:

Error: $(this).rules is not a function
Source file:
Line: 15

I understand that the newer javascript is using more JQuery now using some of the files as below:

<script .../jsparty/jquery/jquery.js?m=1245636882"></script>
<script .../jsparty/jquery/plugins/validate/jquery.validate.min.js?m=1245637447"></script>
<script .../jsparty/prototype.js?m=1245637625"></script>
<script .../jsparty/behaviour.js?m=1245636772"></script>
<script .../sapphire/javascript/ImageFormAction.js?m=1245638693"></script>

This is compared with the javascript files used on my custom form (that is currently working without errors):

<script .../jsparty/prototype.js?m=1245637625"></script>
<script .../jsparty/behaviour.js?m=1245636772"></script>
<script .../jsparty/prototype_improvements.js?m=1245637632"></script>
<script .../sapphire/javascript/i18n.js?m=1245638693"></script>
<script .../sapphire/javascript/lang/en_US.js?m=1245638695"></script>
<script .../sapphire/javascript/Validator.js?m=1245638707"></script>
<script .../sapphire/javascript/ImageFormAction.js?m=1245638693"></script>

I am using: the stable 2.3.2 version of SS and the userforms-trunk-r80052.tar

Wasn't sure if it just something I'm missing or is a real bug. Any help would be appreciated.
