datepicker doesn't update the text input correctly in Chrome

I have a datepicker on a text input field. It's fine in IE and Firefox but in Chrome the input control isn't updated when I select a date. It does update when I click on the input control again (i.e. datepicker reappears) and if I submit the form it is in the right value is submitted.

This is my startup javascript:

start = $(":input[id='start_date']"); date = start.val(); $("#start_date").datepicker({

dateFormat : 'dd M yy', gotoCurrent : true

}); $("#start_date").datepicker("setDate", date);

I've tried jqueryUI 1.8.10 and 1.8.16 and got the same behaviour.

I think this may have been an interaction between a placeholder jquery plugin and the datepicker. I suspect the placeholder plugin is replacing the date with the placeholder and then the datepicker (not surprisingly) fails to parse the string. God know why it only happens in Chrome though.
