"could not set the selected property" error in IE when manipulating SELECTs

Internet Explorer (6, at least), seems to have serious trouble manipulating SELECTS, especially setting the selected property. If I use jQuery to add options to an empty select and then set the selected value, I get the "could not set the selected property" error, which core-dumps IE.
