Where is the gerrit change?

Where is the gerrit change?

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/129806/ makes sure the tools correctly initialize as disabled if the initial selection is null

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/130262/ makes sure the selection isn't 0,0 the second time you open the reference dialog

Verified the fix on test2

Verified the fix in production
