this may have more to do with adding new elements by cloning an existing element with a listener attached?

This seems to work for me in Firefox 8. Is there some specific browser where it failed?

Fails in IE8. Haven't tested in IE7 or IE6 yet, will on Monday.

I see it now, both the problem and the IE8 in your original title. When the element is cloned it appears the property for _change_attached has been promoted to an attribute and cloned, which means the cloned elements don't receive the event handler patch they need.

Do you know of any workaround for this? I tried calling .off() on the select element after its clone and before it is appended back to the page, but no go.

For now the solution is to not clone the element. If you start with a new one it won't incorrectly inherit the attribute that makes it think the event is already attached.

The level of hackiness on this is quite high, but calling $("myclonedelement").removeAttr("_change_attached"); after its cloned and before its appended back to the page seems to fix it and work across IE and chrome.

Fix #10878. Clear oldIE special change/submit flags on a clone.
