I presume you're using Internet Explorer.  This is a well-known bug.  Select
is a windowed control (meaning, IE instantiates the actual Windows drop-down
list-box control as a window); unfortunately, it's not possible to draw over
another window from a window beneath it.  It's not possible to hide part of
the SELECT control in IE4/5 - if you want to hide the entire control, you
can set visibility:hidden (or display:none) on the control.
