You have to click outside of the dialog and then click back inside. I guess the idea is that it's supposed to pick a color in a window other than the dialog window.

Maybe we can have Cody take a look (we didn't implement that color-picker dialog, that's part of Gtk)

This has never worked on Mac and it's not a trivial fix, so I'm disabling the feature for now. Maybe we can implement a native Mac one instead.
