selectManyListbox not setting value

I am having trouble gettingmy selectManyListbox to set the selected values. All of the standard text fields populate but none of the select or multiselect dropdowns/lists select the stored values. I am pretty new to this so I have included everything that I have below, if you do not see it it is not there.

The #{collectionSelect.collections} returns a List<javax.faces.model.SelectItem> and works, the default value in the AdvancedSearchTab constructor is a valid key value in the selectManyListbox list.

Any help resolving this would be much appreciated.

How did you populate List<javax.faces.model.SelectItem> collections ? Try to iterate through it and debug each SelectItem's value.
