I found this little bug after I updated my music folder from 3 pieces to around 300 music pieces. I'm not sure if that is relevant. The thing is that you can select soundclip just fine, but when you want to accept it from upper right corner it selects soundclip what happens to be under that button.

Around this is to select soundclip you want and scroll all the way up where accept text is shown too.

Edit: Removed bug from title and marked solved.

I'm not sure if I understand your problem correctly, but there is no button in the top right corner in that menu (or ever in a list); there's only the indicator lamp to show that you can accept your choice of audiofile by swiping to the left. e.g.: in the menu where you can choose your ringtone from your available mp3s, select the mp3 you want; it's now highlighted. To accept your choice, either (as you did) scroll to the top of the list and push 'accept', OR, much more conveniently, swipe to the left, (-->pushing the menu left out of the screen) and it's accepted. The glowing indicator in the top right corner's merely there to indicate that the possibility of 'accepting' your choice by swiping to the left exists.

Hope this helps!

Yes this is as you said. I thought lamp was still same accept button as I used it when the list was much smaller. Thanks.

I think the issue here is that a Silica Dialog shows the OK/Cancel buttons/indicators - the difference is the same ;) - under the SilicaListView while not actually accepting input thus indicating that's it's still "pressable".

I still don't feel the swipe-left-to-accept intuitive - and from the top of my head I wouldn't be able to say which way to swipe. I need a mnemotechnique ;)
