Unable to save posts in BE 3.1.1.0

I recently did an upgrade of my site and blog, which included a switch to ASP.NET Identity for my account structure. As a result some accounts that existed previously are now gone.

When I try to edit a post that was originally made using such an account, I get the following JavaScript error:
 TypeError: Cannot read property 'OptionValue' of undefined

All that happens is that I get the tiny busy indicator. The problem seems to be that the Author dropdown in the Settings popup window has nothing selected.

I realize it's an edge case, but I wanted to give you a heads up. Perhaps there is some better way to deal with the error.
