Copying select values from one form to another

See this jsFiddle

I expect the code to copy the select value from form1 into form2. This works when the select name attribute is a simple word, however when the select name attribute has opening and closing square brackets "[" "]" it doesn't work in jQuery 1.8.2 or jQuery (edge).

However it DOES work when I switch jsFiddle to 1.6.4.

I am using Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7 x64.

Attribute values in selector expressions *must* follow the rules for W3C CSS selectors, in general that means anything other than a simple identifier should be surrounded by quotation marks.
