Description

In the admin (not newforms-admin) and therefor, in old forms, fields with choices set get dropdowns whose first item is "--------" indicating "not selected".
This appears even when the field has blank=True, and it is always an error to select the "---------" option.

That's by design, so that the first option isn't just implicitly selected. Even if this was to change, it's not going to change in old-admin.

If you want to discuss this then I suggest bringing it up in the django-dev Google group.
