Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced test case on that reproduces the issue experienced to help us assess your ticket.

Additionally, test against the jQuery (edge) version to ensure the issue still exists.

I created this test case, but was unable to reproduce the issue:

Tried to duplicate on jsFiddler but not sure if its my syntax or jsFiddler but I cannot duplicate it there no matter what jquery library is used.

In Summary though, the result object is a json object returned from the server within a .ajax call that populates the select. $(select).text() works fine but .val() will not populate in 1.6.1

I've created another test case based on your description and everything seems to be working properly.

If a test case is provided that reproduces the issue, we can look into it further.
