A select box in a form, when in focus, can not be changed with the mouse scroll
wheel like a normal Windows select box. However, you can change it with the
cursor keys. This does NOT fire a onchange event, even though the value in the
box has changed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Create an HTML document with a select box. Stick
onchange="javascript:window.alert('boo!')" in the HTML. View the page. Go to the
box, change the value it shows. The alert pops up. Now, with it focussed, press
up and down on the keyboard.
Actual Results:  
Nothing.

Expected Results:  
It should have popped up an alert box.
