Enum Drop Down List Question

I have a table "person" with a foreign key list to a table for "status".

The same table has a column "sex" that is "Male" or "Female". I implemented this as enum ("Male","Female").

When I use the AWEGEN crud generator to create an input form (_form) it works great.

On the form the drop down list seems to work different for the "sex" field.

It looks the same as the status field initially, but then if I change it, it turns green and looks like a

text field with a "V" drop down indicator.

Really strange behaviour.

I am testing with Firefox on Ubuntu but I think it is a problem on everything.

I have tried activeDropDownList() vs form->dropDownList()

Any suggestions?

Thanks !
