Choosing a dissertation committee

Profgrrrrl has some useful advice
and insights into choosing a dissertation committee in the social sciences. I've heard horror stories, but was lucky (or wise) in my own committee choices.

Best advice I received? You want your #4 and #5 people to be (at least marginally) helpful but unlikely to create long-term problems. This wasn't really my strategy, but I can see its virtues.
