Which specific version of Photoshop are you using?

The ability to pick a color from the color palette hasn't changed. I think there was a bug a while back which prevented color picking while in a dialog - but that was fixed fairly quickly in an update.

Hmm, that should be working. I'm not having problems selecting colors while in the gradient editor dialog.

Are you talking about the hue slice (big rectangle area) in the color palette? That doesn't sample directly (while swatches do), but you can sample anything on screen by dragging the eyedropper from the document window.
