We've made it so using the magnetic lasso tool can now be used on Layer Masks in Photoshop CS6. #2904586

Hmm. Looks like it's expecting non-alpha data to compute what it needs to compute. Chris would know more. I would say it's intended, even though it's unexpected from the user view. It might be that the warning is just a poor choice of words.

Thanks Jeffrey. What do you think would be the intention here if it in fact was intended. From the user point of view (is there any other ? ;), this seems unintuitive?
