Jen, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

This seems to be a weakness in the jQuery selectbox plug-in that we're  
using. There is an update to the plug-in, so we'll check if that  
addresses the issue. Otherwise, we'll work on that ourselves - I agree  
that it's a very desirable functionality.

Good point - I agree, it's not "proper" behaviour. I'll file JIRAs for  
these issues.

I expect to be working on this component in the next month or two, so  
keep your eye open for updates! :-)
