[wp-hackers] widget select field problems?

Anyone else noticing problems with select boxes in widgets? After I  
save changes, my options are displayed as text rather than option  
fields, like so:

The values are stored correctly, but you can't make any further  
changes without reloading the widget admin page. Select boxes  
generated by WP functions (like wp_dropdown_categories or  
wp_dropdown_pages) don't seem to be affected, but hand-coded ones are  
-- although I can't see a difference in their HTML structures.

Observed in 2.8.2 and 2.8.3 in my plugins and others'... and I don't  
see a bug on it in Trac. Am I going nuts, or is this a bug?
