I filed https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113045 to track the 
issue, and I’m going to look into it.

While on the topic, can someone confirm 
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112933 ? It’s also related to 
<select> dropdowns, and if it turns out to be a real bug and not just an 
issue with my setup, I intend to try and fix it.
