So, I would say this is a bug, now the question is how to workaround this and have my code executed.
In complement to my previous intervention, I have just found how a workaround to my issue:
I thought the .live would be sufficient, but the rest of the code provided by John Burns is still required: the call to .toInit and .bind handles the case when the create popup opens with the CF already shown, and the call to .live handles the case when the project/issue type needs to be changed to display the CF
Not sure how this can be used to do something else than adding handlers to specific elements, though
I think it should be enough, as the description I entered does appear inside the Create/Edit screen, it is updated when I modify it but it does not contain the script part `<script>...</script>`. Which, by the way is included in the list of custom fields in the admin. I think this is related to the fact that in new jira (5.x), the Create/Edit screens are created from JSON instead of being rendered on the server side.
John's answer worked for my case (Jira 5.0.7, trying to set onclick actions for a CF), thank you very much John !
Still there is a case when it is not enough: my CF is only available for one issue type (New feature). When the Create popup opens with another issue type selected and I change it to New Feature, the script seems not to run. Not a real problem for my case, I'll eventually try to find a workaround
