Short description of error
When using the selection popup used to chose which object to select in case of overlaying objects will an armature in posemode always ignore this selection mode and be selected right away without the popup even showing up in the first place.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59546146/AltSelect.blend
This file contains a simple setup with an empty and an armature containing a single bone and both sitting at 0,0,0.
The armature is in posemode and every single time I attempt to get the selection popup by Alt+Rightclicking them to select the empty will the armature instead take the selection every single time. It also doesn't work for bones in an armature in pose mode in case these overlap, so I'd guess that armatures ignore Alt+Select completely.

If the armature is taken out of pose mode then Alt+RMB works for opening the popup and selecting an object, it's only not working if an armatures in posemode is in the pile.
