Yes. Here's the return:
<p><label for="widget-randompostsfromcategory-3-content">Display:</ 
<select id="widget-randompostsfromcategory-3-content" name="widget- 
randompostsfromcategory[3][content]" />
    <option value="title" >Title Only</option>
    <option value="excerpt"  selected="selected" >Title and Excerpt</ 
    <option value="content" >Title and Content</option>
Here's what actually shows up:

<p><label for="widget-randompostsfromcategory-3-content">Display:</ 
			<select name="widget-randompostsfromcategory[3][content]"  
                 Title Only
                 Title and Excerpt
                 Title and Content

(I hadn't noticed until just now that the </select> tag is missing as  
well as the <option>s. How bizarre!)

Interesting! Not an issue here, though.

Want me to file this as a bug?
