Datepicker: Blinking cursor in datepicker dialog only with IE

I'm working on a project in which I'm replacing the current "datepicker" control with jQuery UI Datepicker. To make it compatible with existing code, I had to use the Dialog method. When the Datepicker is displayed, a blinking cursor is seen "behind" the control. It seems that a text box created by the widget has focus. The blinking cursor disappears when either the Month or Year drop-down is selected, but not when Prev or Next is clicked. I see the blinking cursor only when using IE 9 (I believe it's visible in 8 and 7 as well). When using Firefox 17, the cursor displays briefly before being "covered" by the calendar. When using Chrome 23, the text box is highlighted briefly before being "covered" by the calendar. JS Bin didn't have the option to use jQuery UI 1.9.2 so I included jQuery latest in the following reduced test case:

I don't know what the text box is used for. Is it even necessary? Can it be hidden? Ultimately, I just don't want to see the blinking cursor.
