Using .val() on select lists behaves differently in 1.9.1 than it does in 2.x

I have a select list with multiple items in it.

JQuery versions: 1.9.1 and JQuery 2.x

Browsers: Firefox 22.0 and IE7-10

Operating System: Windows 7

I use $('#selectListId').val('') to set the selected value to nothing. (Not my choice, but it exists throughout the code I have to support)

If I'm using version 1.9.1, my list shows as expected, nothing selected.

If I'm using version 2.x, my list shows with a blank, nothing selected. My list is still there but there is a blank showing in the select box.

The jsfiddle is

1.x and 2.x edge versions are consistent. 1.9.1 actually has the incorrect behaviour. If no options match when setting the value on a select element, selectedIndex should get set to -1, which means it should be blank.
