Thanks for all the pointers. I'm sadly behind in learning ajax, so this has
been educational. I did find something that corrects the problem, but I'm
not entirely sure what this line was intended to do in the first place, so
I'm not sure what I just disabled. :/

In widgets.dev.js, line 196, I changed
$('.widget-content', widget).html(r);
$('.widget-content', widget).html;

... and my select boxes display correctly. But I'm having trouble
backtracking the origins of r... where did it come from, and what was it
supposed to do?
