Yeah, this is a known problem with IE. This browser always put some
form elements on top, no matter of other elements with a higher
z-index. There are some ugly JavaScript hacks that hide those
elements, this is probably the only solution to this problem.

Try to add something along (untested, as I don't have IE):

html script: (SUSelector new
    name: 'select';
    do: [ :each | each element hide ])
