Users regularly get confused when you present them with a raw_id popup window which shows action checkboxes beside the list of items they are selecting from -- they try to click the checkboxes, and wonder why the window isn't closing. IMHO it really doesn't make much sense to be performing actions within the context of a popup selection window anyway, though I'm no UXpert. A search on trac revealed [1].

Opinions?

I'm guessing by the date that my comments on the ticket were driven by
the fact that I was triaging hundreds of tickets at the time. On
reflection, what you're describing makes sense to me -- I can't seen
any obvious reason why list_editable or edit actions should be
available on a selection popup (raw_id or otherwise).
