Steps to reproduce

Trying to click an option for a select drop down for a calendar widget. Webdriver can find element, but cannot click it. Html is like following:
<div class="ui-datepicker">
<div class="ui-datepicker-header>
<div class="ui-datepicker-title">
<select class="UI-datepicker-year" data-event="change" data-handler="selectYear">
The java code is something like this:
WebElement calendar = getElement().findElement(By.className(“ui-datepicker-year”));
WebElement yearItem = calendar.findElement(By.xpath(“option[@value=’” + iYear + "’]"));
The web element is found by the driver, but the test fails when it tries to click. Works on other browsers.
Tested in Windows 10 Enterprise Insider Preview Build 14316, with Insider Webdriver 14316
