Datepicker: Using month/year drop downs causes IE11 to crash

I discovered this bug running jQuery UI 1.8.23 but have managed to reproduce it using the demo page on the jQuery UI website.

I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro Preview Build 9431 with IE11.

When in the following page

*Click on the text box to cause the datepicker to appear

*use either the year or month drop downs to select a new date

*On clicking of the year/month an alert will appear saying "Internet explorer has stopped working", IE will then close.

Having stepped through the debugger it seems that when the _updateDatepicker method makes a call to empty on its third line, the removeChild call in there causes the crash.

It seems that having in stalled the final release version of IE11 on Windows 8.1 this bug no longer occurs.
