dojo.setSelectable throws an error when called on an InlineEditBox in IE

Originally this problem was discovered when I created a custom widget extension of the TitlePane? with an InlineEditBox? as the titleNode. When I call this.inherited the TitlePane? calls setSelectable(this.titleNode, false) and errors out. This only happens in Internet Explorer where my widget fails to load.

I traced the error to the query('*', node) that occurs in setSelectable but I don't know enough to suggest a solution.

I created the attached test page and while the page succeeds to load the error is still demonstrated. I tested the page in IE 7 and 8 and both show the error.

There is a distinction between dijits (objects) and what Dojo works on: domNodes. A Dijit is an object with a .domNode member pointing to its representation in the dom. All Dojo methods only work on domNodes (style, coords, place, etc) ... so, implicitly NOT Dijit objects, but are fine when accessing the Dijit instance's .domNode member.

Going to mark this as invalid, unless you get the same error when replacing dijit.byId('foo') with dijit.byId('foo').domNode (but even then you run the change that dijit.byId('foo') is undefined and has no .domNode member, so better checking should be in place in your code)
