CQ5.5: Wrong default values displayed in forms with IE8

Issue

If you add show/hide rules on a Form (Dropdownlist or Radio Group) and set initial values as detailed below, the wrong default values are displayed on a publish instance in IE8.

1.) Create a new form
2.) Add two DDL components to the form
3.) Add three values (elema, elemb, elemc, …) to each DDL
4.) Set title=’Title 2′ and initial value to ‘elemb’ for 2nd DDL
5.) Set title=’Title 1′ and the initial value to ‘elema’ for 1st DDL
6.) Add the following rule (check ‘show/hide’) to Title 1: Show Title 1 if all of the following are met: Title 2 is equal to elemb
7.) Goto Preview, or Activate the page and call it on publish instance, or call it on author instance with param ‘wcmmode=disabled’

Result:
In IE 8, Title 1 is not shown (that is wrong), Title 2 displays elemc (that is wrong). If you change Title 2=elemb, then Title 1 does become visible, but with default value elemc (that is wrong).

Expected:
elema is shown as default value in the first DDL and elemb in second one.

Reason

This seems to be related to a problem in IE8.

Solution
The problem does not occur in Chrome (tested with version 27), Firefox (tested with version 19) or IE9.
