SPFilterDropdown on complex select has difficulty with long vertical bar in data?

The lookup column has data like "xxxx | yyyy" and when I tried to use the SPFilterDropdown function the choices presented were all mixed up with integers mixed in.  Selecting one of the choices resulted in a SharePoint submission error.  Removing the long vertical bars eliminated the problem.  I'm good with not having the vertical bars.  Just thought you would be interested.

Thanks. Yes, I recently had a report of that issue:

It's surprising that it took over 50,000 downloads before anyone reported it!
