Nothing wrong, just the expected.
-default shows up as an extra option first in the select, with blank value. This is what shows up on a page where the select has no initial value.
To make it look nicer it is separated from the rest of the options by a blank option.
That's just a way to do it that I've become used to, so I implemented that in Knop...
Remove -default and you'll get rid of both your troubles.
