Picking objects fails in pose mode

Short description of error
In pose mode, it is impossible to pick a target object with picker.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Import a rigged character in your scene. Also add a cube or another object to your scene.
Go to pose mode of the rigged character. Select any of the hand bone > add a CHILD OF CONSTRAINT from the bone constraints tab >
in the CHILD OF CONSTRAINT box click the picker icon of the target input> try to click the cube to make it as the target. But nothing happens.

In order to work that, you have to go to OBJECT MODE first. then clicking works. In pose mode it doesn't. In previous versions it worked well.
Also why the pose mode is so restricted, you have to go to object mode every time to work with other objects. It was not like that. And this one makes it really difficult.
