If you use DropDownListFor in an editor template, the selected value of the dropdown as specified in the model is ignored. For example, if in an editor template I do this:

@Html.DropDownListFor(m => m.SelectedItem, Model.Items)

and Model.Items is "X", "Y", and "Z" and Model.SelectedItem is "Z", we would expect the dropdown to show "Z" selected when the page is rendered. Instead, "X" is selected (the default value).
