Comment (by PeteHoliday):

 parent_dropdown is not the function responsible for that particular

 The one you're looking for is wp_dropdown_pages, which is defined in wp-
 includes/post-template.php. That is just a wrapper for get_pages(),
 however, which is defined in /wp-includes/post.php.

 That function should probably include logic to display private pages for
 admins and, ideally, running the query through a pages_where filter
 similar to the one used for posts.
