[thelist] IE select value in drop down but clicks on map

Hi there,

I have a nasty little problem, as so often, only with IE. Here is an  
screenshot to better illustrate the problem. http:// 

The map is clickable (to enable zoom in and other functions). But in  
this case, I would like to select a value from the drop-down list,  
which displays as a "drop-up" list because of not having enough space  

Now, when I click to select a year, IE interprets this as a click on  
the map, instead of just a selection within the box. It sends the  
request to the server and the server does what it is supposed to do.  
But the selection of the year still wasn't successful.

Any way to avoid that IE confusion?

Thanks for any hints!
