 In `Walker_CategoryDropdown::start_el()`, cast values to strings before
 deciding whether to append 'selected' attribute.

 As of [32484], `wp_dropdown_categories()` uses the `$value_field` value to
 decide whether a given `<option>` should be 'selected'. However,
 can refer to a value that is a string, such as a category's slug. This
 problems when doing a loose comparison (`==`) with the value of the
 parameter, which defaults to `0`, because when doing a loose comparison
 between an integer and a string, PHP will cast the string to an integer.
 creates false matches, resulting in `<option>` elements getting a
 attribute incorrectly.

 We address the issue by casting the comparison values to strings, and then
 using the strict comparison operator `===`.

 Fixes #33452 for trunk.
