The dropdown functions allow you to specify the field name, so they  
work great under 2.8:
wp_dropdown_categories(array('name' => $this->get_field_name('cat'),  
'hierarchical'=>1, 'selected'=>$instance['cat']));

I think my problem has more to do with jQuery, since the hand-coded  
dropdowns display correctly when refreshing the page but not when  
saving the widget options.
