1.2.1 → 1.2.2
new → closed
As noted by the author this is a problem with IE (works in Safari, FF, and Opera). Attempt the following code in IE:
document.getElementByTagName("select").appendChild(new Option("stuff", "stuff"));
and it fails as well. IE seems to only want to use Options created with new for the Select.add() type functions.
At this point it doesn't make sense to me to add a bunch of code for this specific purpose when the author has already noted a perfectly valid workaround. So I'm going to close this bug as wontfix (although I try to avoid doing that). If someone thinks this is a bigger issue than I do, please feel free to reopen the bug with your explaination of why you think this should be fixed and it will be considered.
